Guv: PNoy coming
after MassKara

BY CARLA GOMEZ

President Benigno Aquino III is expected to attend the inauguration of the Negros First CyberCentre (NFC) in Bacolod City, to be held probably after the MassKara Festival, Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday.

The Presidential Management Staff arrived in Bacolod City Tuesday to inspect the site, but no date has been set yet, he said.

In June, the President issued Proclamation 802, declaring NFC an Information Technology Center special economic zone.

Ubiquity Global Services is the first locator at the NFC.

Meanwhile, Marañon said Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella has asked for permission to use the Panaad Sports Complex for the MassKara Festival street dancing arena competition on October 17 and 18.

The governor said he has allowed the use of the Panaad. It will be up to the city government to provide adequate security for the event, and to clean the area up after, he said.*CPG
