Subic Bay, Before and After
Subic Naval Base was the Naval resupply, repair, rest and recreation area of the Spanish Navy when the Philippines was under Spanish Colony. And later on became the US Military Naval Base when the Americans took over the Philippines. Subic Naval Base was instrumental in many events in our history like the Spanish-American War, the Philippine-American War, World War 1, World War 2, The Korean War, and The Vietnam War. By 1991 Mount Pinatubo Eruption force the Americans abruptly had to leave the US Military bases in the Philippines including Subic Naval Base.
The formation of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority catalyze the developments of many former military bases in the Philippines including Subic Naval Base which became Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority SBMA. Today SBMA is a free port zone with locators like hotels, industrial plants, commercial retail shops, and beach resorts.
