Dumaguete Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria said the growing number of businesses in Dumaguete City is an indication of economic growth and the increasing buying power of the people living in the city.
He noted that commercial establishments are sprouting everywhere, adding that the food industry is one of the growing businesses in Dumaguete City because of the student population.
Sagarbarria led the inauguration during the weekend of the second branch of Mooon Café at Silliman Avenue near the Rizal Boulevard.
The mayor said he is happy that local businessmen from Dumaguete and Negros Oriental have put up their businesses that will also benefit the local economy and provide more jobs.
He said the booming local economy can also help solve the unemployment problem in Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental. Most of the business establishments in this city are encouraged to hire staff from Dumaguete and Negros Oriental, he said.
Sagarbarria said that he has instructed the City Health Office particularly the sanitation team to conduct regular monitoring and inspection of restaurants and other establishments engaged in the food business for them to comply with proper waste disposal and sanitation.*MA
