She is expecting a healthy business atmosphere prevailing in the 55 kilometer Roman Expressway in comparison with the Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) traversing the five metropolitan cities of Caloocan, Quezon, Mandaluyong, Makati and Pasay which are classified as densely populated and over occupied with establishments.
The expansion of the province’s main thoroughfare into six-lane road network, installation of CCTV and street lighting facilities and other safety devices, creation of transport terminal, hotels and restaurants and other hale and hearty amenities would further persuade the entry of local and foreign investment communities.

The strategic location of the province in the vicinity of the two premier Freeport zones in the country, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) and Clark Ecozone ,with profitable manufacturing plants operational in numerous industrial growth areas in Bataan are big factor which make the historic peninsula an ideal place for locators, Ms. Enriquez added.
