City freed from grim
unemployment: Mayor

Bacolod Congressman-elect and Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday recalled that in the past nine years, Bacolod City had been enjoying the independence and freedom from the grim statistics of unemployment due to very favorable business environment for major investments, citing the call centers that recently gave the city the mark of “Center of Excellence”.

These major investments, like the business process outsourcing or call center industry, have provided jobs to many of the city’s unemployed, he said during the 115th Independence Day celebration at the Bacolod City public plaza yesterday, his last as mayor of Bacolod.

Leonardia said the construction boom is very visible as multi-million investments continue to pour into Bacolod. These investments generate jobs that liberate many from extreme want, he said.moremoremore
