Monetary Board action
sought on Capitol loans

The Negros Occidental provincial government is still waiting for the action of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Monetary Board on its P156.4 million loan from the LandBank of the Philippines and P40 million loan from the Philippine National Bank that it has sought to finance various projects, Provincial Treasurer Nilda Generoso said yesterday.

Provincial Administrator Enrique Pinongan, who has written to BSP Governor Amando Tetangco Jr. on the matter, yesterday said the favorable opinion of the Monetary Board is a new requirement for local governments in availing of loans, along with a Sangguniang ordinance, and not just a resolution.

Generoso said the provincial government has complied with all the Monetary Board requirements, including the required Sanggunian ordinance for the projects concerned.moremoremore

Lobby on Ayala
turning to social network

A group of organizations and private citizens, calling on AyalaLand Inc. not to pull out of its plan to develop the 7.7-hectare property of the Negros Occidental provincial government, will be bringing their campaign to social media sites in the hope that it will go viral, Nestor Evaristo, vice president of the Hotel and Restaurant Association of Negros Occidental, said yesterday.

They have also started a text brigade campaign, he said.

“COA has spoken. There are no more legal impediments for the Ayala-Capitol Development Project. We, the people of Bacolod City and Negros Occidental, call on AyalaLand to reconsider their decision to pull out from this project, and appeal to SMPHI, to withdraw their court case against the province and its officials to give Negros a chance to grow and develop,” their text message says.moremoremore
