Bacolod City Mayor Monico Puentevella was so thankful over the support
extended by the private sector in helping our beloved city as instrument that
has been identified anew as one of the sites for one of the APEC meeting which
will be held in 2015.

This appreciation was announced yesterday in a regular press conference held
at the People’s House. "I would be grateful though people in Mindanao are asking
for this but not of the site chosen. I would like to thank the private sector,
the peace and order, our power better than some areas in the Philippines,"
Mayor Puentevella said that he was so happy with the development that our
City will be one with Iloilo City, Cebu City, Manila and Boracay as sites for
Asia Pacific Economic Conference. Last September 30, 2014, Marciano A. Paynor
Jr., Director General of APEC National Organizing Committee had informed Mayor
Puentevella that a team from their office (APEC-NOC) is planning an initial
visit in our City of Smiles on October 14-15, 2014.
However, since the Local Chief Executive is occupied now with the Masskara
events, the sites visit will be held after October where they undertake an
ocular inspection of the hotel venues, airport facilities and cultural sites
that are proposed to be used for the Philippines’ hosting of APEC in 2015.
