Center for Tourism and Leisure
The Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) – the agency mandated to manage the development of the Cagayan Freeport – is empowered to operate, directly through license, joint venture or lease various tourism and gaming-related activities such as casinos, horse racing, dog racing, and all forms of gaming without having to pass through any national government agency, even the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), which is the government agency tasked to operate and maintain gambling pools, whether on land or sea, within the territorial jurisdiction of the Republic of the Philippines.
