Mayor Leonardia: Bacolod is ‘next big thing’
Mayor Evelio Leonardia on June 19 said Bacolod City is “the next big thing.”
The Bacolod politiko made the remark after the city was awarded as the “Most Business-Friendly City” during the The Manila Times’ Search for the Philippine Model Cities and Municipalities 2018.
Leonardia cited the influx of major developers that has spurred Bacolod’s rapid growth.
“An added incentive and inspiration is that we were given a special title as the ‘Most Business-Friendly City,’” he said.
“Now it can be told that ‘Bacolod is the next big thing,” Leonardia added.
