The Bacolod Express Services Office (BESO) is the newest public government satellite office in the city that launched last Tuesday, July 4, at the third level of SM City Bacolod, led by Bacolod City Mayor Alfredo Abelardo Benitez.

The satellite office, officially called BESO, brings government services closer to the public in cooperation with private sectors to enhance economic growth as these services become more convenient for the Bacolodnons and promote inclusion among the constituents.

Pacifico Maghari III, Atty. Karol Joseph Chiu, and OIC Provincial Director Of Negros Occidental Ms. Lynna Joy Cardinal.

Mayor Benitez says that Bacolod Express Services Office or BESO shall give excellent service to the people of Bacolod, making it easier to access government services and process government transactions.
