MacroAsia Corporation has forged a deal for a joint water project in Cavite and Iloilo with property developer PRO-FRIENDS.

In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, MacroAsia said its wholly owned subsidiary Naic Water Supply Corporation has entered into a joint venture agreement with Maplecrest Group Inc., PRO-FRIENDS’ parent company.

The joint venture will assure the sustainable supply of water in the existing communities in Lancaster New City, Bellefort Estates and Carmona Estates and on-going and future projects of PRO-FRIENDS.

The JV also includes PROFRIENDS’ development in the Province of Iloilo.

Recently, MacroAsia completed the construction and installation of its Maragondon Plant for its bulk water project in Cavite which is currently under commissioning stage.

MacroAsia is also pursuing various water projects in Cebu, Iloilo and in Talim island in Rizal.
