MBCCI is a member of Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI).
The Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI) is a non-stock, non-profit organization. It was incorporated in 1986 and was voted the Most Outstanding Chamber in the Visayas in 1998, 1999 and 2000. MBCCI is a member of Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI).
By furthering economic progress in Bacolod and the Province of Negros Occidental, the Chamber recognizes that ultimately all Negreses will benefit a better quality life.
Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Frank Carbon yesterday lauded the recent economic progress and development in Bacolod City and other parts of Negros Occidental, despite the city's drop from No. 2 in 2010 to No. 73 this year in the National Competitiveness Index.
Numbers are just numbers, Carbon said, citing that progress is evident as shown in the recent boom in infrastructure and investments in Bacolod and the rest of the province.
These developments are not slated for mere short-term or two-to-three-year socioeconomic aims but for attaining long-term goals that have great significance for the next 20 to 50 years, or even more, Carbon said.Read more
