“The more the merrier.”
That was the reaction of Joseph Sian, Robinsons Land Corp. Visayas Operations director yesterday, when asked about the entry of AyalaLand Inc. in Bacolod City through its development plan at the lot owned by the provincial Capitol.
Sian said RLC is not threatened by ALI’s entry to Bacolod as it will mean healthy competition. He said they have been expecting it since, wherever RLC builds its malls, their competitors follow.
