Bacolod resettlement
area to open Sunday


Bacolod City will finally open its latest resettlement area for informal settlers Sunday afternoon.

Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia and Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson will lead city officials in the ribbon-cutting ceremony to formally open the Arao property for occupancy of beneficiaries pre-qualified by the Bacolod Housing Authority.

The city’s newest resettlement site is a priority project of the Leonardia administration that had been accomplished over obstacles and black propaganda from the political opposition.moremoremore

Taiwanese eyeing
Negros trade, tourism

Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. last night said his 5-day trade mission to Taiwan was very fruitful in terms of drawing potential investors and tourists to Negros Occidental, setting up academic linkages and promoting the province’s organic agriculture.

During his visit to Taiwan, the Ming Dao University in Taichung City gave the governor a lifetime achievement award for agriculture, and a special citation for his advocacy and implementation of organic farming.

The governor said that, while in Taiwan, he met several times with officials of Danny and Hudson Inc., a firm which produces office supplies and bags for the National Book Store and for export to Japan and the United States, who are interested in putting up a manufacturing plant in the Sagay Economic Zone.moremoremore

P69M ready for
Capitol bonuses


The Negros Occidental provincial government is expected to allocate P69 million for the extra bonuses of its 2,300 employees this Christmas, but the amount could even be higher, Provincial Budget Officer Percival Salado Jr. said yesterday.

He said they are waiting for the guidelines from the Department of the Budget and Management on the release of extra bonuses.

Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. has said the extra bonus for this year should not be  lower than  the P30,000 each as had been given last year, Salado said, adding that the amount could go higher, depending on the savings for the year.moremoremore
