Two more Negrenses yesterday lodged complaints before the Department of Trade and Industry-Negros against freight firm LBC for its alleged failure to deliver their packages, DTI provincial director Rebecca Rascon, said.
Efren Timtiman and his son Paul Jun of Bacolod City first filed their complaint before the DTI-Negros when they did not receive the package sent by his daughter Neila Joy of Richmond, California.
DTI acting chief for Freight Center Marceliano Bernal Jr. has scheduled the mediation today at the agency’s office in Manila.

Neg. Occ. on the way to
Negros Occidental is on its way to reaching its goal of becoming a rice self-sufficient province with a 23 percent increase in its rice production for 2011-2012, a press release from the government said.
“No province, no region in the country has had this increase in rice production,” Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. said in the press release.
Marañon also said that because of the province’s program on crop insurance, the national government is increasing the coverage of the insurance from 4,000 hectares in Negros Occidental to 12,000 hectares of rice land.
