Capitol eyeing to generate jobs

Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said the provincial government is eyeing to come up with a program that could generate jobs for the Negrenses.

During the provincial government’s small group consultation with the business sector last week, industry leaders have asked how the government can help stimulate the economy, he said.

The national government is preparing for this, the governor said, adding that agencies have programs that offer lending assistance to micro, small and medium enterprises.
