Master Plan for Metro Bacolod, MBDA Vital for Progress – MBCCI

share it Now!

For Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI) president Frank Carbon, the realization of a Master Plan is still the prime basis in order for a city to progress and for them to achieve their long term goals.

Prosperidad, San Carlos City, yesterday. The governor encouraged them to propose agricultural projects for the benefit of their association, as they are a big factor to the Food Security and Agricultural Productivity Agenda of the Provincial Government.* (Capitol photos)

"We have to have a Master Plan not only for Bacolod, but for Metro Bacolod," Carbon said. In addition, he foresees the Metro to be composed of other developing cities like Silay, Talisay, Bago, Murcia and Don Salvador Benedicto as akin to Tagaytay, a summer destination for local and foreign tourists.

"We need to advertise Bacolod as a central hub of more than 1.5 million people and not as a stand alone city," he added.

Meanwhile, with Bacolod slowly being recognized by private agencies and institutions as an emerging city outside of Metro Manila, Carbon admits that it is a boost for the Local Government and the business sector to further push their limits and gain the top spot, considering that Cebu is now a Metropolitan City in their own right.

"Cebu is a done deal. Now, it’s Iloilo and Bacolod," expressed Carbon.

According to the MBCCI president, Bacolod’s advantage over Iloilo is its geographical location. With the city mostly made up of flat lands, it is also not susceptible to flood and has a number of rivers and creeks that act as natural drainage when heavy rain occurs.

The city also invests on good education and constantly produces quality graduates – an element that employers are always looking for in their employees.
