Bacolod City finalist in ‘Most Business- Friendly LGU’ Award
Bacolod City was named one of the national finalists for the 2018 Most Business-Friendly Local Government Units.
This was announced by Mayor Evelio “Bing” Leonardia on Monday after the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) informed him that the city has advanced to the final judging.
“We are already a winner, regardless of the final outcome, because being a national finalist is a feat in itself. It bolsters our image as an investment haven. This is also very positive for our business climate,” Leonardia said.
In 2017, Bacolod was included in the top 3 for the same award. It was the only highly urbanized city outside of Metro Manila to make into the finals.
This year’s awarding ceremony will be held on October 18 to 19 during the 44th Philippine Business Conference and Expo at Manila Hotel.
