Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories - BY TERESA D. ELLERA

NE­GROS Oc­ci­den­tal Vice Gover­nor Eu­ge­nio Lac­son said yes­ter­day his plans for 2019 in­clud­ing the push for more tourism pro­grams for the prov­ince.

Lac­son said the tourism pro­gram must be sus­tained, as he cited that the prov­ince is sec­ond in terms of do­mes­tic tourism na­tion­wide.

“Our per­son­nel from the tourism of­fice will have to re­ally come up with ideas to push for­ward Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal’s tourism,” he said.

Lac­son also said he is talk­ing with out­go­ing Third District Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Al­fredo Ben­itez for his con­tin­ued help es­pe­cially in strength­en­ing the prov­ince’s eco­nomic team.

“We will ac­tu­ally be vis­ited and in­vested in by in­ter­ested par­ties. Hope­fully, we will have big busi­ness com­ing in that will ac­tu­ally lo­cate here in Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal. And I am con­fi­dent that Ben­itez will help us with this,” he added.

These are just some of the things I am look­ing for­ward to right now with the goal in mind of im­prov­ing the eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion of the prov­ince that will ben­e­fit many peo­ple and small busi­ness, he said.

He also said that it would be im­ma­ture for him to dis­re­gard the pro­gram that is do­ing very well of Gover­nor Al­fredo Marañon Jr., es­pe­cially ed­u­ca­tion, health and aid for farm­ers.*
