To improve the income of Mambukal Resort, Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said that the Provincial Government Office is open to the idea of having it privatized . Early this year, a portion of the resort’s convention hotel had collapsed. The mayor said that they are currently waiting for the opinion of the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers regarding the structure.
A budget of PhP84 million for the construction of the Mambukal Convention Hotel and for repair of the resort's tourist lodge was allocated by the Provincial Government. To date, the hotel has not operated yet and has not been turned over yet to the Provincial Government.
DOT 'Accreditation on Wheels' arrives in Bacolod
In line with the Department of Tourism’s (DOT) mandate, Western Visayas brought its "Accreditation on Wheels" program to Bacolod City. The mandate aims to develop and enforce a system of required accreditation for primary tourism enterprises and voluntary accreditation for secondary tourism enterprises.
In relation to this, Memorandum Circular 2019-17 issued by Interior Secretary Eduardo Año instructed all LGUs to require all primary tourism enterprises, particularly accommodation establishments, to secure accreditation from DOT before they are issued licenses or permits to operate.
This is the first DOT "Accreditation on Wheels" in Bacolod City. It was a partnership between the Bacolod City local government unit (LGU) and DOT-Western Visayas.
