Lacson: Under my administration, tourists arrivals will more than double
By Dominique Gabriel G. Bañaga
Incumbent Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said, once elected governor following the upcoming 2019 midterm elections, he will prioritize road concreting projects.
According to Lacson, such projects must be implemented in areas frequented by tourists as it would boost the local tourism industry.
The gubernatorial aspirant is confident, once projects are completed by his administration, tourist arrivals in Negros Occidental will more than double and surpass neighboring provinces.
Based on 2017 Department of Tourism records, Negros Occidental received the second-highest number of tourist arrivals.
Under the unified Love Una ticket, the incumbent vice governor was expected to run unopposed for the top post; however, Atty. Rolandon Parpa, who said he wants to address the problems faced by farmers, also filed a certificate of candidacy for Negros Occidental governor./DGB, WDJ
