The House of Representatives approved on third and final reading the bill proposing to boost the country’s arms industry and encourage exportation of conventional weapons and equipment.

With 196 affirmative and six negative votes, House Bill 8212 or the Special Defense Economic Zone (SpeDEZ) Act was given a swift approval as majority of House members are optimistic the measure will help improve the country’s bid towards economic recovery.

   Authored by Bataan Rep. Jose Enrique S. Garcia III, HB 8212 provides for the establishment of a SpeDEZ inside the government arsenal defense industrial estate in Camp Gen. Antonio Luna located in Limay, Bataan.
