A seminar-workshop, aimed at defining the new normal operating practices, health protocols, and policies for the provincial government’s Economic Enterprise Development Department (EEDD) was held at the Negros Residences in Bacolod City recently.
The participants, who are all EEDD personnel, were trained on how to operate business and conduct public transactions under the new normal set by the Department of Tourism.
Cristine Mansinares of the Department of Tourism Region VI, who is also the province’s former tourism office head, spearheaded the workshop, a press release from Capitol said.
At present, the provincial government manages three enterprises – the Negros Residences and Food Terminal Market in Bacolod City, and the Mambukal Resort in the municipality of Murcia – all supervised by the EEDD, headed by Lucille Gelvolea.
Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said that the EEDD is mandated to maximize the economic potentials of the province through proper and better utilization, administration, management, and control of its resources, thus, the need to promote business integrity in the province’s managed economic enterprises should be cultivated.
“Let us make it our call to maximize the potentials of the province’s enterprises, for it is our duty to make sure that these will not only be profitable but also beneficial to the people of Negros Occidental,” Lacson said. He added that with the success of the enterprises comes the possibility of having more enterprises to support and fund more development programs for the province.*
