Officials of 2 provinces meet  
on island-region move today

Negros Occidental and Oriental officials will hold a consultation dialog on the proposed creation of a one-island region at the Nature’s Village Resort Hotel in Talisay City this morning.

Negros Oriental Vice Governor Edward Mark Macias yesterday said his province supports the move for a one-island region, but while the lengthy process for its creation is being pursued, they can, in the meantime, already broaden areas of cooperation with Negros Occidental.

The creation of a one-island region will require a congressional act and Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. had earlier said he believes the congressmen of both provinces will support the move. moremoremore

Marañon, who spoke at the opening of the Regional Agri-fair at the Panaad Park in Brgy. Mansilingan in Bacolod City, said organic agriculture has come a long way since its inception nine years ago.

He said that, indeed, Negros is already an organic island, not only in the Philippines but in Asia, as envisioned by then Negros Oriental Governor George Arnaiz and the late Governor Joseph Marañon of Negros Occidental, when they signed a memorandum of agreement in Tanjay City in 2005.moremoremore
