About 40 members of the National Association of Independent Tour Operators Associations will hold an educational and familiarization tour today to evaluate and inventory the latest tourism products and services Bacolod City and Negros Occidental has to offer, Bacolod City Tourism Council chairman and former Bacolold Rep John Orola said.
Orola said they are looking at Bacolod and Negros as an emerging tourist destination, and would like to see attractions in line with the Secretary of Tourism's tag line, ‘It is more fun in the Philippines.'
He said they are joining forces with NAITA and other local government units with tourism councils in Western Visayas in this program.
Check on gas outlets
to resume this week
Bacolod Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson said they met with the representatives of the Department of Energy two weeks ago and will resume their inspections on gasoline stations in Bacolod City next week.
Because of the holidays, they were not able to conduct inspections to check on the calibration of gasoline pumps of gas stations in the city, he said.
Sayson said they can now attach “Out of order” stickers on gasoline pumps that are not properly calibrated, in violation of a national law and a City Ordinance.
