Hotel projects get incentives

THE BOARD of Investments (BoI) has granted incentives to two hotel developments totaling P314.91 million, the agency said in a statement yesterday.

Hotel St. Ellis’ P224.91-million investment will be used to renovate a six-storey hotel building in Legazpi City, the BoI said. Upon completion, the 1,476 square-meter accommodation will have 40 rooms.

A Filipino company, unidentified by the BoI, will meanwhile put up a two-storey hotel, dubbed Highlander Hotel and Resort in Nueva Vizcaya, worth P90 million. This hotel will have 76 rooms, a bar and restaurant and a swimming pool.

Both hotels will generate 145 jobs, the statement read.

The Legazpi City hotel was granted up to four years income tax holiday, while the one in Nueva Vizcaya was granted up to six years, since the province is listed as a “less developed area.”

Under the 2009 Investment Priorities Plan, projects for tourism infrastructure are qualified for such incentives.

The BoI also granted up to four years income tax holiday to two mass housing developments and a fish processing plant.

Among these is Federal Land, Inc.’s construction of a P246.73-million condominium in Paco, Manila. The 15-storey building will house 184 units.

Johndorf Ventures Corp. similarly received incentives for its P127.015-million housing development in Butuan City. The firm will be building 196 units on a 30,000-square meter lot.

A fish processing and packing project of Malalag Bay Aquaculture and Processing Corp. for P30.40 million also qualified for incentives. The project actually consists of two facilities - one in Sta. Maria, Davao del Sur and the other in General Santos City. -- JADH

BOI approves incentives for 5 new projects

Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 22:39:00 11/10/2009

THE BOARD OF INVESTMENTS has approved the granting of various fiscal and nonfiscal incentives to P719.1 million worth of projects in the mass housing, hotel, and aquaculture sectors. Entailing the largest investment among the five projects is the Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes of Federal Land Inc., which will cost P246.7 million to complete.

Located in Paco, Manila, the mass housing project involves the development of a 15-storey condominium building that will house 184 units on 1,441 square meters of land. Once the project becomes operational by next month, it will provide employment to 256 individuals.

Another mass housing project, that of Johndorf Ventures Corp. in Butuan City, will also get BOI perks. The P127-million development entails the construction of 196 low-cost housing units to be sold for between P705,000 and P819,000 a unit. The project has generated 75 new jobs in the area.

Apart from mass housing, the BOI also approved the registration of two hotel projects worth a combined P314.9 million: The P224.9-million Hotel St. Ellis in Legazpi City and the P90-million Highlander Hotel and Resort in Solano, Nueva Vizcaya.

Hotel St. Ellis, which has been classified by the Department of Tourism as a tourist inn, will have 40 rooms with floor areas ranging from 23-54 square meters. It is scheduled to start commercial operations next month.
Highlander Hotel and Resort, on the other hand, will have two storeys and 76-rooms, and will cater to foreign and local tourists visiting Nueva Vizcaya.


Set to start commercial operations by January 2010, it will provide jobs to 100 employees. BOI perks were also given to Malalag Bay Aquaculture and Processing Corp. for its P30.4-million aquaculture business in Davao del Sur and General Santos City. The project involves two stages: The growing of milkfish in Davao del Sur and the processing of the fish and other marine products in a leased General Santos facility. The company intends to sell its products both here and abroad. - Abigail L. Ho

Albay gets P560M for evacuation shelters
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 21:36:00 11/29/2009

LEGAZPI CITY — Albay will double its evacuation facilities with three more buildings devoted to emergency shelters during typhoons or Mayon eruptions to prevent classes from being disrupted whenever classrooms are used as temporary relocation sites. Albay Gov. Joey Salceda said the project would be funded by grants from the Spanish and Japanese governments through their respective funding agencies, the Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo (Aecid) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica).

The project has a total cost of P560 million, with P180 million coming from the Aecid and P380 million from the Jica. The project will be carried out by the Albay Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council (PDCC), which will build three additional provincial evacuation centers, bringing to six the total evacuation facilities put up across the province, as part of its disaster risk reduction program.

The Albay Rising, a task force formed to implement rehabilitation and relocation of devastated communities, said there was still a demand for 4,801 shelter units in the province. Freedah Paula Abiada, livelihood manager of the Albay Rising, said efforts to relocate calamity victims were still going on.

“The total target of families for relocation is 10,793. We have 4,535 families that have been already awarded and occupying shelter units at their respective resettlement sites provincewide; 1,457 houses are still under construction. That gives us a total of 5,992 houses that will be totally occupied before the end of this year, leaving only 4,801 shelter units more to build,” Abiada said.

Salceda said the additional three two-story-type evacuation center buildings can accommodate some 250 families or 1,250 people. These will be built in Malilipot town and in Tabaco and Ligao cities. He said the additional evacuation centers would reinforce the three newly constructed holding centers in Daraga, Camalig and Guinobatan towns, which are already 96 percent completed and waiting for formal turnover from the funding agencies.

The provincial evacuation centers would declog the existing school buildings being used as evacuation centers in times of calamity, he said. “Definitely I don’t want to suspend classes during Mayon eruptions.” This strategy would make classes in all public schools in affected areas continue smoothly and unhampered despite the influx of evacuees in times of calamity, Salceda added.

He said that in normal situations, the buildings could also be converted into a 20-classroom-type school building. “As soon as the funds arrive, we will start civil works for the three provincial evacuation centers,” Salceda said. Rey M. Nasol, Inquirer Southern Luzon

AECID grants €1.6 Million for Legazpi City’s Environment Project

The City Government of Legazpi received a grant of €1.6 Million or PhP93 Million from the Agencia Española Cooperacion International Para El Desarollo (AECID) for the City’s Ecological Solid Waste Management Project. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed on March 5, 2009 by Mayor Noel Rosal of the City Government of Legazpi and His Excellency, Ambassador Luis Arias of the Spanish Government at Hotel Venezia. NEDA 5 witnessed the event together with the heads of regional agencies, Legazpi City government officials, and non-government organizations.

The project will be the first ecological solid waste management project in Bicol, pursuant to RA 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act. It will involve the construction of a sanitary landfill facility and materials recovery facilities (MRF) for cluster barangays, IEC and capability building activities. It will benefit some 135,000 residents of Legazpi City.

NEDA Region 5 facilitated the early project preparation stages and preliminary negotiations that commenced in November 2008. The Feasibility Study and Detailed Engineering are on-going.

‘Hotels, hospitals still hot investments’

By Max V. de Leon
Reporter


DESPITE the present gloom in economics worldwide, investors are going ahead with their plans to increase hotel and hospital rooms, a decision the government said shows continuing investor confidence in the country.

These tourism sector investors have already under development over P9.1 billion in projects injected during the first half of the year. Tourism Secretary Ace Durano said these government-registered projects, once completed, will raise domestic supply of hotel rooms by another 1,177 units.

“These projects confirm the stark investor confidence that the country continuously enjoys. We fully advocate immediate action on said projects to further boost the economy,” said Durano in a statement.

The Department of Tourism has reported these projects include the LKY Hotel (formerly Mayon Hotel) in Legazpi City, Imperial Palace Waterpark Resort and Spa in Lapu-Lapu City, Microtel Inns and Suites in Cabanatuan, Park Bed & Breakfast Hotel & Restaurant in Pasay, Hotel Kimikarlai in Cagayan de Oro; ABC Apartel in Angeles City, Hotel Vida Resort Complex in Pampanga, Paseo Premiere Hotel in Laguna, Bahia de Baler Garden Resort in Aurora, Country Inn Hotel and Restaurant in Cagayan de Oro, Manila Ocean Park and the Sabin Resorts and Development Corp. in Lapu-lapu.

Among those expanding their infrastructure are Shangri-La Mactan in Cebu and the Eastbay Arts Recreational Tourism Zone in Rizal; while the Peninsula Manila will modernize its facilities.

Ma. Victoria Jasmin, head of the department’s Tourism Investments Promotions Group, said the construction of these ventures has generated jobs and their completion is expected to generate more jobs “as the tourism industry remains one of the biggest employment resources in the country.”

In the medical tourism segment, Medical City announced it will add 250 more hospital rooms.

Board of Investments-approved investments are eligible for income tax holidays of 4 to 6 years, and duty-free importation of selected capital equipment for their operations.

JICA approves P780-M grant for construction of new evacuation centers in Albay
By Mike dela Rama

LEGAZPI CITY, Feb. 5 (PNA) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Japan has approved implementation of the P780-million project on the construction of seven evacuation centers in the province of Albay under the Japan International Cooperation Agency. The project which will cover the seven two-storey evacuation centers with 15 rooms per storey, will cost about P60 million each.

Albay Governor Joey Salceda said the buildings would serve as emergency shelters for those that need not be relocated especially residents along the flood-prone areas outside the danger zones of Mayon Volcano. “This is a first since JICA Head Quarter has agreed to provincial implementation instead of national government through the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH),” Salceda said, adding that the project has already gotten its green lights after months of follow-up with the donor.

“The proposal was for the construction of Emergency Evacuation Centers in vulnerable areas of mayon volcano due to pyroclastic flow and mudflows (lahar), landslides and flood. This will help a lot in saving lives during calamities,” the governor added.

The official said a preparatory survey has been approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Japan for the consideration of the approval of the project. Based on the JICA recommendation, the Preparatory Survey consists of 2 surveys: preliminary survey and basic design survey.

The province evacuated some 10,000 families during Mayon’s mild eruption last December 15 to January 4. “But other calamities such as floods, lahar flows and strong typhoons have sent some 40,000 families to different temporary shelters across the province that disrupt classes of students when their schools are temporarily occupied.

The province of Albay has three existing permanent evacuation sites in Guinobatan, Camalig and Daraga towns which were donated by the Spanish government through the Agencia Española de Cooperaccion Internacional Para El Dessarollo (AECID) which costs P30 million for each building. It is fully equipped with the necessary facilities and the AECID is also working out plans to construct more.

The AECID buildings are also lent to school children as their temporary classrooms but the respective occupants during calamities are the real owners who in turn take good care of them. Salceda further said that the residents at the extended and permanent danger zones of Mayon have been relocated as well as those who lost their homes from the super typhoon Reming on Nov. 30, 2006.

The province sits on a typhoon belt and evacuation due to Mayon Volcano is inevitable due to pre-emptive and pro-active response to achieve the zero-casualty goal of the province. “We move people to a safe distance before Mayon erupts, we move people to stronger roofs before typhoons hit, and we move people to higher grounds before floods and lahar start to rampage our communities and that is the real essence of a zero casualty plan,” Salceda explained.(PNA)

The feasibiliity studies should not be limited to solid waste and not only for the benefit 135,000 residents. It should include water treatment plants to treat sewage. Furthermore this is the perfect opportunity for local and national officials to include all infrastracture (wider roads, telecommunications, power lines, etc) studies before things get out of control. Just look at what have happened in Baguio.

Albay expects over P15 billion in energy investments
(The Philippine Star) Updated February 08, 2010 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - It is now certain. Over P15 billion in foreign investments in energy projects will be poured into Albay in the next three to four years. This was revealed by Lawyer Rodolfo ‘Jong’ Bonafe, board chairman of the Albay Electric Cooperative (Aleco), who said the new investments will further consolidate Albay’s reputation as the “national renewable energy capital” of the Philippines.

Renewable energy development, particularly of geothermal and wind energy, is among the priorities of Albay Gov. Joey S. Salceda which complements his sustainable development strategy and supports his public governance initiatives in climate change adaptation, mitigation and risk reduction.

Aside from geothermal and wind energy, Bonafe said Salceda also wants to tap Albay’s hydro-solar and ocean thermal energy resources in Cagraray Island and the towns of Manito and Tiwi which is renowned for its many hot springs. Bonafe likewise disclosed that in some investment meetings he personally attended, several South American and Korean investors have already declared their decision and commitments to invest in Albay’s identified energy projects.

Albay is acknowledged as the leader in the generation of “green energy” in the country from its rich geothermal resources. Renewable or green energy development, Bonafe pointed out, is not only “environment friendly, but will also address the impending energy crisis and assures that electricity in Albay will be relatively cheaper.”
