BPO, real estate changing
Negros economic landscape

The Bank of the Philippine Islands is adding four more branches in Negros Island this year to keep up with the demands of the changing economy and financial inclusivity of the two provinces, its president and chief operating officer said yesterday.

BPI President and CEO Cezar Consing in a media interview in Bacolod City yesterday said that before, it was just on the sugar industry that Negros depended on for its development, but now industries like the Business Process Outsourcing and Real Estate are entering and is changing the landscape.

“These two industries have helped redefine the local economic landscape and will generate more jobs for Negrenses,” he said, adding that Negros is becoming more financially inclusive.
