Sales from the six-day 33rd Negros Trade Fair at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City that ended last night hit P31.8 million, or an increase of 24 percent from last year’s P25.6 million, Sybel Nobleza, ANP External Affairs Manager, said.

The increase came despite there being only 72 exhibitors this year compared to 88 in 2017, she said.

“We targeted a 10 percent increase in overall total sales versus last year but we are so happy that we reached more than the target,” Elka Torrejon, ANP executive director, said last night. moremoremore

The Commission on Elections-Bacolod was able to accommodate 982 registrants during the last day of voter’s registration at the annex building of the Bacolod City Government Center Saturday, Bacolod Election Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia said yesterday.

Majarucon-Sia, however, said they were not able to accommodate more than 500 registrants since the registration ended at about 5 p.m. and their data capturing machines had exceeded their capacity for the day.

She said they could only accommodate a maximum of 500 in one day. moremoremore

Fast craft operators seen
to hike fare by P25 – exec
BY MARK L. GARCIA

A possible fare increase of about P25 in fast crafts traversing the Bacolod-Iloilo route is eyed by their operators this week if oil prices continue to surge.

Frank Carbon, chief executive officer of the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said yesterday that the fast craft operators have admitted that they might increase rates of up to P25 if oil prices continue to hike this week.

Carbon said there are reports that oil prices this week may increase up to P1 per liter and its implementation might cause operators to also hike the fare of fast craft passengers.
