ABOITIZ InfraCapital (AIC), the infrastructure arm of the Aboitiz Group, was named the "Best Industrial Development Company" at the 2021 International Finance Awards held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Cosette Canilao, president and chief executive officer of AIC, said the recognition shows the company's commitment to continue the development of Economic Estates that raise the country's profile as one of the most attractive investment destinations in Southeast Asia.
"We are delighted to be recognized as the Best Industrial Development Company for 2021 by the International Finance Awards. This achievement is a testament to our team's commitment to enable businesses and uplift communities, through best-in-class estate development and operations. This is further validation of our position as a leading industrial developer, not just in the Philippines, but also in the whole region. We are excited to further expand our footprint and introduce new product lines, smart city features, and sustainability programs," Canilao said.
In November 2021, AIC was also recognized as the Best Industrial Developer in Asia at the 16th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards — only one of the two regional winners from the Philippines.
