The head of the Ocular Team from the Office of the Director-General of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation 2015 National Organizing Committee (NOC) said they were impressed by Bacolod City’s readiness to host the APEC conference in 2015 in collaboration with the public and private sector.
Undersecretary Natalio Ecarma lll, Deputy Director General for Operations, yesterday said they were impressed that Bacolod has created its local APEC Organizing Committee and the Mayor has already assigned his councilors to specific committees.
With this type of cooperation, I believe securing Bacolod, barring any untoward incident, will not be that hard,” he said, adding that the Philippines National Police will be heading the security with the support of the Armed Forces.
