‘WV  fourth largest
PH economy’

National Economic and Development Authority Regional Director Ro-Ann Bacal yesterday said Western Visayas is the fourth largest economy and the sixth fastest growing in the country.

Western Visayas is very critical to the country, being one of the top five rice producers and the number one producer of sugar in the country, said Bacal, who was in Bacolod City for an orientation on the mandate and functions of the Regional Development Council and NEDA, attended by Negros Occidental officials.
