Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories -

VICE Gover­nor Eu­ge­nio Jose Lac­son is the act­ing gover­nor of Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal since May 1 to 4.

Act­ing Pro­vin­cial Ad­min­is­tra­tor Lu­cille Gelv­olea said that Gover­nor Mara­non also with some Capi­tol de­part­ment heads have been to the North­ern Ter­ri­tory in Aus­tralia for a busi­ness travel.

With the Gover­nor are Pro­vin­cial Plan­ning and De­vel­op­ment Head Ma. Lina Sano­gal; Pro­vin­cial In­vest­ment Pro­mo­tions Con­sul­tant Rafael Coscol­luela; Pro­vin­cial Tourism Head Cris­tine Mansinares and Cristina Or­be­cido, head of the Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal Lan­guage and In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ter.

Gelv­olea said that Mara­non was able to get the travel author­ity from the De­part­ment of In­te­rior and Lo­cal Govern­ment for his travel based on the in­vi­ta­tion of the North­ern Ter­ri­tory govern­ment for a pos­si­ble agri­cul­tural in­vest­ment and trans­fer of tech­nol­ogy.

Based on our Lo­cal Govern­ment Code, we have the man­date to pur­sue our cor­po­rate man­date to look for pos­si­ble in­vest­ments that would come to and from Ne­gros, Gelv­olea said.

“Gover­nor and his team would like to pro­mote Ne­gros as an in­vest­ment des­ti­na­tion es­pe­cially our tourism po­ten­tials,” Gelv­olea added.

The busi­ness sec­tor is rep­re­sented by Arce­nio Barcelona in the Gover­nor’s trip./tde
