Malacanan, PEZA Approves Bacolod-Silay Ecozone and Technopark

More than 38 hectares of land beside the Bacolod-Silay International Airport on Silay City has been registered today as a special economic zone today by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority [PEZA).

Golden Dragon Agri-Aqua Corporation represented by its president, Eric Hernaez and PEZA Director General Charito Plaza signed the registration agreement today in Manila for the Bacolod Silay Economic Zone and Technopark (BSEZT).

Witnessing the signing today is Bacolod-Negros Occidental Federation for Information and Communications Technology (BNEFIT) executive director Jocelle Batapa-Sigue and consultants Porferio Montesclaros and Ted Segura.

Montesclaros, trustee of the Mactan Export Processing Zone Chamber of Exporters and Manufacturers said the development will herald the economic boom of Silay and the province of Negros Occidental and he counts on the collaboration of government and private sector to make this happen.

Batapa-Sigue said the project is the 20th economic zone which is presidentially proclaimed in Bacolod, but the first mixed-use zone in the province of Negros Occidental.

Located in Barangay Bagtic, Silay City, the ecozone will now allow the province to attract various types of locators ranging for information technology (IT), manufacturing, tourism, agro-industrial, retirement villages and other industries.

Plaza thanked Hernaez for registering with PEZA and encouraged him to work hard to attract investors to create jobs in the countryside.

BSEZT received its Presidential Proclamation No. 315 dated September 14, 2017 issued by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte under Republic Act No. 7916 or the Special Economic Zone Act of 1995.
