Dizon stepped down from his post on Oct. 15 to take a “more challenging role as Presidential Adviser for COVID-19 response.”

BCDA Director Aristotle B. Batuhan was appointed Officer-in-Charge.

BCDA said under Dizon’s term, the agency earned P48 billion in gross revenues, the highest by far of any administration, and by itself represents almost 40 percent of total revenues in the last 27 years.

Under Dizon, the BCDA also remitted the highest amount to the Armed Forces of the Philippines at P34.2 billion, almost triple that of the previous administration and almost double the contributions from 1993 to 2010.

Major infrastructure projects, including New Clark City Athletics Stadium and the Clark International Airport New Passenger Terminal Building, were also built under his leadership.

Dizon served BCDA for five years.
