PPA Launches Five New Port Projects on 50th Anniversary

THE Philippine Ports Authority (PPA), as the premiere maritime agency, continues to steer progress through the archipelago’s vital ports and harbors, keeping its place as one of the strongest ports in Southeast Asia. Over the years, PPA has been involved in various port expansion and modernization projects aimed at improving the efficiency and the capacity of the Philippine Ports.

PPA takes pride in commemorating five decades of dedicated service in facilitating maritime connectivity across the Philippine islands and to the world, even making history with its highest dividend remittance in 2023 amounting to Php5.06B, contributing to economic growth, and placing 4th among the top GOCC contributors in the country every year consistently.

The PPA is giving back to the public another five more projects this 2024 in addition to the hundreds of projects it created since the agency’s inception in 1974. Among the five key projects this year are the following:

Law Enforcement Building (LEB) at Port of Currimao


To ensure efficient cooperation between the PPA and other government agencies, the agency constructed the Law Enforcement Building (LEB), situated at the Port of Currimao in Ilocos Norte. It is a state-of-the-art facility that aims to strengthen security measures and streamline coordination among various government agencies tasked with ensuring the safety of ports and waters nationwide.

PPA-PCG K9 Academy in Pampanga


The K9 Academy was established to assist the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) by providing a dedicated academy equipped with comprehensive facilities, including training centers, living quarters, and more. This project is expected to significantly contribute to the community by producing a greater number of trained handlers and improving overall security and efficiency at the port.
