The Negros Occidental provincial government Economic Enterprise Development Department logged a 24 percent increase in its collection as of November last year.

EEDD records indicated it has a cumulative collection of P234,738,358.38 from the Cyber Center, Food Terminal Market of Occidental Negros, Mambukal Resort, Negros Residences, and Ayala Rentals, compared to P189,357,519.06 collected in 2022.

Provincial Administrator Atty. Rayfrando Diaz, who is also the EEDD officer in charge, reported yesterday that the Cyber Center was the top performer, with a collection of P111,019,386.50, Ayala Rental posted a collection of  P34,794,973.62, Mambukal Resort and catering  – P70,792,728.96, FTMON – P10,447,303.05, and Negros Residences – P7,683,966.17.

Diaz temporarily took over the supervision of EEDD, following the retirement of Lucille Gelvolea, who is now the Bacolod City administrator.

He immediately implemented the reorganization of EEDD personnel by assigning focal persons and administrative officers to facilitate smooth operations of the different economic enterprises.

“We are over performing in some establishments but other businesses need to pick up so that their income will improve,” Diaz said.

Gelvolea had been lauded by Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson for a job well done, as head of the EEDD for several years.

In general, EEDD has surpassed its target for 2023. We are now setting new target for 2024, to contribute to the local income of the province, and not just rely on the National Tax Allotment (NTA) for our budget on succeeding years, Diaz said.*
