Subject: [CPEO-MEF] "No traces" of Agent Orange at Subic Bay
No traces of 'Agent Orange' in Subic ? SBMA

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT - Officials of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority
(SBMA) assured residents, investors and visitors to the Subic Bay
Freeport Zone yesterday that there are no traces of "Agent Orange," a
toxic chemical used by the United States military in the Vietnam War, in
the former American naval base. 

Reynaldo Garcia, SBMA public relations office head, told The STAR that a
news report saying that Agent Orange was shipped from New Zealand to
Vietnam through the former Subic military base "should not be a cause
for alarm." 

Garcia said the report originated from a New Zealand official who was
quoted as saying that "products used to make Agent Orange were shipped
from New Plymouth to Subic Bay in the Philippines."
