PVO intensifies campaign
on safe handling of meat

The Provincial Veterinary Office of Negros Occidental is intensifying its meat handling services to contain and prevent the spread of avian influenza viruses and other pathogens in the wet market.

The PVO, through its Animal Health and Inspection Services Division, and the Research and Laboratory Services Division, will get the help of the local government units to promote safe meat handling practices.

Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said they will provide guidelines, especially on the procurement of meat vans, meat shops, and upgrade of slaughterhouses, to address the harmful effects of contaminated pork and other meat products sold in the wet markets in the different parts of the province.

Outsourcing firms occupy most office
spaces in Bacolod, real estate exec says

Colliers International, a global real estate company, said developers should build office towers within the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA)-proclaimed properties as outsourcing firms have occupied most of the office spaces in Bacolod City.

Joey Bondoc, Colliers International senior research manager, said developers should also develop larger floor plates for consolidation of tenants, offer more plug-and-play offices, and tweak the tenancy mixes of their retail podiums to attract or retain occupants.

He also encouraged tenants to partner with government-run training centers to upgrade employees’ skills and keep an eye on new office towers due to be completed in the city this year until 2021.
