A Taguig official has vowed to help the city keep its hold on Fort Bonifacio, the rapidly growing business center east of the Makati Central Business District.

Ricardo Jordan, the city council’s majority floor leader who was part of the group of politicians who fought to take Fort Bonifacio from Makati’s control in the 1990s, said that the rapid rise of the area as a premier business center has helped Taguig grow into a highly urbanized city.

“Fort Bonifacio has helped our city’s finances grow, from a budget of P70 million in the 1980s to P4.5 billion this year. We get most of that from the businesses there. Without Fort Bonifacio, without the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig would still be a sleepy town today,” he told the Inquirer.
