While Tourism is flourishing in Subic, she said that only in 2017 that a few cruise ship visited the freeport but in 2018, around 19 cruise ships docked in the freeport and told the audience to brace themselves because more prominent and bigger cruise ships will come
With Gov. Abet Garcia in the audience, she added that tourists aboard the cruise ship prefer to go to Bataan instead of going around Subic.
Eisma believed that SBMA is not only an investment hub but a tourism haven for it has been the site of important national and international events, in fact, it will be the venue of the SEA games this year.

Zambales and Bataan.
Administrator Eisma mentioned the importance of HB 8083 otherwise known as the TRABAHO Bill or TRAIN 2 which aims to reduce the corporate income tax rate from 30% to 20%, unlike in the TRAIN 1 which focuses on personal taxes, TRABAHO bill deals more with the corporate taxation.
