BACOLOD City — Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Frank Carbon said he believes the capital city has “met the basics” in its bid to host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit meetings next year.
He said Bacolod has “prequalified,” which is why the APEC National Organizing Committee inspection team came here in the first place.
The business group leader was reacting to the statement of Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. on the reports he received regarding the recent inspection.
Marañon earlier said he got a feedback from the inspection team that “the city is not ready to host international conferences.”Read more

BUSINESSMEN of the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI) are upbeat on the development of the 7.7-hectare Capitol property by Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) after the court dismissed the case filed by rival SM Prime Holdings Inc. against Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. and other provincial officials for declaring ALI as the winning bidder.
MBCCI president Frank Carbon said Tuesday that they expect that ALI will soon start developing the Bacolod property.
The Regional Trial Court Branch 50 denied for lack of merit the petition for certiorari filed by SM Prime, a development that paves the way for ALI to start the P6-billion development of the Capitol property.
The petition sought the annulment of any negotiated sale and lease by the provincial government of its property to ALI, and for SMPHI to be declared the winning bidder of the July 7, 2011 bidding.Read more
