Reds score 'Go Negosyo,' super regions



The Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army and its political wing, the National Democratic Front, did not spare from its criticisms the government-backed "Go Negosyo" Caravan, which promotes entrepreneurship among Filipinos, and the super regions program of the Arroyo administration.

In a statement it issued yesterday, it said that such economic package is aimed to further plunder the province's natural resources and oppress Negrense laborers and farmers.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo attended the "Go Negosyo sa Bacolod" on July 13 and awarded the most inspiring entrepreneurs in Bacolod and Negros Occidental. The same day, she also presided over the Infrastructure and Investment Conference of the Central Philippines Super Region at the New Bacolod- Silay Airport in Silay City. Arroyo said there will be a boost in tourism investment once roads and airports are built and energy supply is assured in the region.

But the CPP-NPA-NDF said part of this economic package is the real intention of the Arroyo administration to prioritize Negros in the Visayas for aggressive counter-insurgency operations to dismantle the NPA movement in the island.

"That Negros is a priority in counter-insurgency (operations) was the reason why it was the venue for the launching of the grand plan for the Central Philippine (Super) Regions," the CPP-NPA-NDF statement added.

It also said that infrastructure development projects like airports, roads and bridges, eco-tourism, mining operations, and alcogas production are not intended to improve the lives of the farmers, fisherfolk, urban poor, women and small entrepreneurs.*NLG

As usual. The usual reaction from the commies. But hopefully, agrarian unrests just like what happened in Hacienda Velez-Malaga in La Castellana and other sections of Negros would be resolved so that the full potential of Negros will be tapped.

The question is, its already 15 years since CARP was instituted by the government, why is there still such events of agrarian unrest happening not only in Negros but other provinces as well?

Just a reminder guys: Please use the multi-quote function everytime you are replying to multiple posts rather than posting consecutive replies, its rather a waste of space. Hoping for your cooperation, thanks.

And also, just a suggestion, I think it would be better if the list would just be on the first post then the other users will PM the first poster if they have any new projects to add to the list so that the first poster could edit the list. It would be better than always reposting the whole list...

I'm not sure the proposed Ethanol Plant in Murcia....
A million pesos ethanol plant is constructed in San Carlos City. Last month, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between China's CAMC Engineering Co. Ltd. (CAMCE) and B.M SB Biofuel Company in the Philippines for the putting up of two ethanol plants in Kabankalan City in southern Negros and Murcia in the central portion.

The MUO, CAMCE will earmark a total of US$20 million for each ethanol plant in Kabankalan and Murcia and will also hire local residents to compose the workforce. full story


***************

This group, which is being assisted by Representative Ignacio "Iggy" Arroyo Jr. (5th District, Negros Occidentla), is eyeing either the Dacongcogon Central also in Kabankalan or Danao Central in Escalante City. full story: http://www.sunstar.com.ph/static/bac...ol.prod.n.html

The Daily Guardian Newspaper

First micro-hydro power launched in Negros Occidental

TALISAY City – Electric power became accessible to residents of Sitio Mambucano. Brgy. Cabatangan in Talisay City with the recent launching of a micro-hydro power and charging facility here.

This small village benefits from a 10 kilowatt hydro power with charging facility, the first of its kind, where16 households charge their batteries for their energy consumption.

Through their cooperative - CAFARMULCO, with 20 active members, the community was able to avail of a cement irrigation canal but only extends 5 kilometers from a source in Campuestohan which is only halfway to their farms.

Alternative Indigenous Development Foundation Incorporated (AIDFI) through funding from the United Nations Development Fund- Small Grants Programme - Philippines was able to extend the canal for 2.2 kilometers and built the hydro power turbine to best cater to the needs of the community. Project cost is P2.2 million to include the charging facility.

Auke Idzenga, head of the Appropriate Technology Department of AIDFI with another technician from the foundation got the idea of hydro power from their training in Nepal and Indonesia on Pelton turbine manufacturing.

It took the foundation and the cooperative more than two years to finish the cement canal at the speed of 30 meters a day. The entire construction employed members of the cooperative and today, all components like the pelton turbine it had cast at RU Foundry in Manila are now fabricated by AID Foundation except for the generator from China.

Proximity of the houses from the hydro power turbine pose a problem since additional power lines is beyond the maximum budget of UNDP and so the battery charging concept became an option. Such option also is best since it can regulate the consumption of households.

CAFARMULCO is in charge of the collection for the battery charging where members pay right after charging making the project sustainable, according to AID Foundation.

To ensure water supply, the AID Foundation partnered with the Negros Forest and ecological Foundation (NFEFI) which planted 2,500 seedlings of endemic species along the canal.

Idzenga said they are calling for additional funding from politicians and line agencies to maximize the excess power from the hydro power and for the replication of the project in other communities. (PIA/EAD)

Clear fiscal policy first before putting up ecozone

BUSINESSMAN Harish Nandwani believes that Bacolod City can be as successful as Cavite or Bataan in running an economic zone (ecozone) but warned that local officials must shift outlook through sheer obedience to and imposition of the law.

Arroyo Watch: Sun.Star blog on President Arroyo

As earlier reported, Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson publicly announced that the City Council is ready to propose the conversion of the old airport to an ecozone subject to the approval of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

“I hope the City won’t put up an ecozone simply because there is an airport that is about to be vacated,” Nandwani said.

Rather, he said local officials should think like businessmen.

An ecozone, he explained, is not like inviting a call center to put up a branch here or a mall like SM.

Businessmen will invest if given a climate where a level playing field is set and the law is properly implemented.”

“If tax incentives and holidays are given to malls then same favors must be given to all other businesses. Otherwise, who will come and invest in an ecozone where homegrown businesses are discriminated?” he said.

“The SP must clear fiscal policy first before anything else. Future investors must be assured of this,” Nandwani added.

“I suggest that the City Government invite all the key ecozone officials of other provinces, learn from them and let’s start one here to solve unemployment problems.” Nandwani stressed.

Meanwhile, ex-councilor Ana Marie Palermo is wary of the City’s policy, saying, “Are we ready to launch an ecozone when we politicians cannot even solve simple traffic problems, implement solid waste management and most of all cannot even provide a decent health program to our people?”

“It is a fact that our labor has a certain attitude that is very adversarial to investors, always labeling everyone as capitalist oppressor. If we have to establish an ecozone then we should be clear on wage and salary policies,” Palermo said.

Palermo agrees with Nandwani to fix our fiscal policies where malls are not given favors at the expense of other businesses, saying, “Malls and call centers can take care of themselves while businesses in an ecozone may not be robust.”

San Carlos City Development Plan



Adjacent to the Old Town, San Carlos City Center is a 100-hectare project that integrates business, commercial, recreational, and residential components and will become the core of the new expanded town, the center of trade and commerce in a city of socio-economic promise.

San Carlos City Center includes the 40-hectare “Business Park”, envisioned to be the new central business district, “South Villa,” a middle income residential subdivision, and the “Center Mall” complex which includes retail spaces, sports and recreational facilities, a cultural center and other establishments. The main anchor of the City Center are the new City Hall in the center, the Bishop’s Palace and Archdiocese Seminary, a National High School and site for the Gaisano Mall, J. F. Ledesma Civic Center, and other key structures.

San Carlos Business Park
San Carlos Business Park was designed to be the premier business and commercial address in San Carlos City. Well-planned and conveniently located on 40-hectares of prime property within the San Carlos City Center, the Business Park boasts of world-class infrastructure not available in other locations.

Wide concrete roads with tree lined sidewalks, efficient drainage, properly engineered waterworks and electrical grid, together with modern communication systems- all designed to meet the most stringent requirements of today’s businessmen and tomorrow’s corporations. The layout also offers a perfect central location for retail and service establishments just minutes away from any point in the city.

When business seems to be moving in the right direction, it might be time to move to San Carlos City’s premier business address.

Center Mall is to be the hub of commercial, social, and recreational activity for San Carlos City. This Sprawling commercial complex being built in stages is to house a multitude of shops and service establishments in an environmentally sound setting.

Three buildings have completed their first phase of construction and shops, restaurant and service establishments have moved in. As the buildings expand, many more shops are expected to add to the critical mass supported by extensive sports, cultural and recreational facilities.

A perfect place to start a restaurant, open your branch, expand your business, or just be self-employed. This is the ideal rental space to catch families shopping, feed hungry sports fans, or simply meet people’s everyday needs.

North of the town center (CBD) is a 212-hectare Special Economic Zone duly approved by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority as an industrial estate and export processing zone, with some residential and commercial uses. This is one of only 100 such sites in the country allowing businesses locating here special incentives under the law. In particular the SEZ, as part of a larger plan to move the economy away from the dying sugar industry, will be courting a variety of agro-based manufacturing industries.

Detailed design Guidelines are being developed to help structure the over-all development and ensure that quality of the environment within the eco-zone is maintained.

OPINION: Building proper roads

Irate landowners have set up more tollgates in southern Negros Occidental. The story is familiar: the landowners are demanding that the Department of Public Works and Highways pay them for the use of the land over the past 50 years. Land on which the government has built a highway but apparently forgot, or maybe deliberately ignored, the appeals for compensation of the original owners.

What makes this development significant is that a critical national highway runs through these disputed lands, and obviously, the erection of tollgates will be an added inconvenience to the motorists, commuters, and cargo that pass through this busy stretch of road everyday. For the landowners to resort to this drastic action, they must have felt that they have run out of options in pursuing their claims of compensation from the government.

A dialog between the landowners concerned and government officials who have the power to remedy this situation would be appreciated by the people of southern Negros Occidental if it will result in the immediate reopening of the roads, and a final resolution to the claims of the aggrieved parties.

Aside from finding a lasting solution to this recurring problem, our government also has to learn from these incidents, especially because the President's recent SONA outlined the building of thousands of kilometers of farm-to-market roads. We hope that those new roads get the proper funding, which should also include money for the expropriation of the lands on which they will be built. It would be a great disservice to the landowners, the Filipino people, and future government officials if this ambitious plan of the current administration to build thousands of kilometers of roads ends up with a problem like the one being faced by the highway along Hinobaan and Sipalay today.*

METROPOLITAN BACOLOD & NEGROS OCCIDENTAL CITIES IN A FUTURE!!!

These people have a creative ideas on what will be the future of our cities looks like. They were very visionary, for example the reclamation area will be called as the Masskara City. At the edge of the city at BREDCO there will be a Mask shaped human made island, very cool idea.

At the other cities like Talisay, the place is already highly urbanized. Same with other Cities and Municipalities of Negros Occidental. These Architects and soon to be Architects have in common “Positive and Bright Future”.

This exhibit was displayed at Gaisano City - Bacolod, Araneta St., Bacolod City last year 2006.

City SP ratifies agreement on climate friendly project
BY GILBERT BAYORAN

The Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod ratified the memorandum of agreement between the city government and the project proponents of the Climate Friendly Cities project yesterday.

The MOA was entered into between Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia, representing the Bacolod City government, and Athena Ballesteros, representing the Green Renewable Independent Power Producer, in Bacolod City last month during the launching of the project. The launch has established Bacolod City alongside Makati City as a pilot area for GRIPP's Climate Friendly Cities project.

The project, particularly the development of the initial 50-strong fleet of electric jeepneys to be leased to pilot cities, is largely funded by the Dutch DOEN Foundation which provides funding to organizations and projects in the fields of sustainable development, culture, welfare and social cohesion.

Under the MOA, GRIPP will secure the proposal, resources, funding and technical expertise for the electric jeepney component of the project, starting with the development and manufacture of the electric jeepneys, with the initial fleet of three units, whose importation, technical operation and maintenance will be undertaken by their project partners.

It will secure the funding and technical expertise for the power plant component of the project, consisting of a generator, a high solid anaerobic digester, and gas engine that shall provide the electricity to charge the complete fleet of electric jeepneys.

GRIPP will provide for the construction of a depot that shall serve as a charging station and maintenance center of the fleet, and provide the city with relevant information and technical resource persons, as necessary, with regards to the project as part of its information-education campaign.

GRIPP shall be responsible for the actual implementation of the project, particularly the operations of the biodigester and the utilization of the electronic jeepneys and its concomitant results.

On the other hand, the city will be responsible for helping secure for the project preferably a one hectare piece of land for use of GRIPP upon which the biodigester or power plant and depot for the jeepneys will be built, by way of a long term lease agreement at a reduced or affordable price or whatever arrangement is deemed appropriate.

The city will also help provide GRIPP with a test route or routes and the corresponding franchises for a period of technical and commercial tests of the pilot fleets of three electric jeepneys, of not less than three months between July to October 2007.

It will undertake, through the Department of Public Services, the segregation of the organic from the non-organic and the collection of organic waste to be regularly supplied or delivered to the site of the biodigester that will provide the power that will charge the electric jeepneys in compliance with the Philippine Ecological Waste Management Act of 2000.*CGS
