with COA delay: guv

Ayala Land Inc. has informed Gov.

Jose Emmanuel Jalandoni, ALI senior vice-president, in a letter dated April 4 released by the governor to the media yesterday, said they will focus their plans and resources on their Northpoint project in Talisay City, as well as other potential opportunities in the province.

He assured Marañon of the company’s commitment to Negros as a “growth center” for its development, and said they will continue to look forward to bringing more quality products and lifestyle developments to the Negrenses.moremoremore

‘Negros to be lamb
capital in 2 years’


Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said that he is optimistic that Negros Occidental will be the “lamb capital” of the Philippines within the next two years, as he described the breeding of sheep in the province as “promising”.

The provincial government bought 6,000 sheep from Australia for breeding purposes in Negros Occidental, and these are now housed at the Negros First Ranch in Brgy. Santa Rosa, Murcia.

Marañon said he expects the 6,000 sheep to double their number in 14 months. A kilo of lamb meat is being sold at P500 to P700.moremoremore
