Bacolod is among the big fish in the country.

Mayor Evelio “Bing” Leonardia proudly shared that he is among the select few invited by President Rodrigo Duterte to attend the Special Gala Dinner Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

The formal event, which is scheduled on Sunday, Nov. 12 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City, will bring 10 heads of state of the ASEAN member-nations, global leaders, government officials, and the business community for a grand Filipino banquet.

“This shows that Bacolod is being recognized as a big player in the ASEAN community, being the first LGU (local government unit) to express its active participation in the ASEAN integration, especially in the light of enormous challenges and benefits such integration brings,” Leonardia said as he accepted the President’s invitation.

Duterte and Leonardia have grown close, with the President joining Bacolod’s MassKara festival for two years in a row now.
