[ PRESIDENTIAL DECREE NO. 1901, January 31, 1984 ]
EXTENDING THE PERIOD OF TAX EXEMPTION OF PHILIPPINE AEROSPACE DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
WHEREAS, under its Charter (Presidential Decree 286, as
amended by Presidential! Decree 696), Philippine Aerospace Development
Corporation (PADC), a government corporation, is exempt from all national and
local taxes, duties and fees for seven (7) years from date of promulgation of
