Local entrepreneurs suggest involvement in the province’s progress

April 22 - 28, 2017

The businessmen in Maasin City and other parts of the province expressed their willingness to partner with the government, specifically the local government units, in the formulation of the development plan and implementing guidelines.

They said that they could help based on their experience and foresight in identifying progressive and sustainable options that would generate more financial return to a bigger number of Southern Leyteños.

The existing provincial government thrusts in tourism, environment and agriculture are going in the right direction. However, this would need a comprehensive and deeper understanding on those three, which would necessarily consider our unique natural physical assets. We do not destroy this natural advantage. We should, in fact, enhance them. Tourism would boom because of this uniqueness. And more people would benefit through a multiplier effect because more businesses would be generated. Yes, focus is needed on infrastructure that would enhance the unique beauty of Maasin City and the province. Another reclamation project is NOT the answer.

These ideas came out during the SLCCI recent meeting.(By MARK L. RIMAS)
