24 AUGUST 2011, WASHINGTON DC – Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose L. Cuisia, Jr. met today with senior executives of Peregrine led by Mr. Dennis Wright, President and CEO, who discussed the company’s investments in the Philippines on behalf of KGL, a prominent Kuwait investment group.

Ambassador Cuisia conveyed the Philippine Government’s appreciation for Peregrine’s vision to help transform the Philippines as the premier logistics hub in the region. Mr. Wright, in turn, confirmed that “there is more good news about the Philippines.”

Peregrine, a U.S. knowledge management company specializing in project development, is the exclusive developer and prime contractor of the Global Gateway Logistics City (GGLC), a $2 billion dollar project conceptualized by Peregrine that is being developed on behalf of the KGL Investment Company.

The GGLC is a modern, state-of-the-art, 177-hectare, aviation-oriented logistics hub and mixed-use commercial business park.  Located at the Clark Freeport Zone in Central Luzon, Pampanga, the project is directly supported by the Philippines' largest international airport, a new and modern major deep water container port, two major expressways, and a planned railroad.

Peregrine also serves as co-chair of the Philippine-US Business Committee of the US-ASEAN Business Council. END
