Don’t delay Negros growth,
bizmen asks nat’l agencies


Business leaders yesterday called on two national government agencies to step up the development of hydro electric power in Negros Occidental and the sale of the Capitol property in Bacolod City to Ayala Land, saying inaction on these is a hindrance to the development of the province.

Frank Carbon, president of the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Ben Ortega, president of the Bacolod Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said the Department of Energy should act on the service contracts on the rivers of Negros Occidental and the Commission on Audit should come out with a ruling on the sale of the provincial government property in Bacolod City to AyalaLand to spur development.moremoremore

Mayor: Bacolod Chinatown
a public-private partnership    

After the signing of the ordinance creating the Bacolod Chinatown Center, Bacolod City looks forward to a very successful partnership between it and the Filipino-Chinese community and this will be a test of public-private partnership in the city, Mayor Evelio Leonardia said yesterday.

Leonardia said “We hit the ground running, because right after the signing, we convened the Bacolod City Chinatown Development Council and formed the various committees we believe are necessary to make this project take off.”

He said they have also agreed to hold regular meetings that will not be dependent on the availability of top officials, but must go on, no matter what the circumstances, to ensure that the wheels of the organization will keep rolling.moremoremore
