SMC Bulacan Int'l Airport Proposal   Bizwatch
 
03:41
San Miguel Corporation’s unsolicited proposal to build an international airport in Bulacan was just approved by President Rodrigo Duterte. The airport project is just one of the almost one Trillion pesos worth of infrastructure projects approved by the President. The National Economic Development Authority Board which is chaired by President Rodrigo Duterte approved no less than twenty big-ticket infrastructure projects worth over P974.8 billion. The biggest among these approved infrastructure projects is the airport proposal of San Miguel Corporation. The proposed airport in Bulacan which covers 1.168 hectares is expected to decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The whole area which will house the airport is 2,500 hectares along Manila Bay in Bulacan, Bulacan. It will also house a city complex. This is a 50-year airport project where six parallel runways will be built. The initial capacity of this airport is 100 million passengers which is triple that of the NAIA. Although already approved by NEDA, the San Miguel proposal will be still be subject to a Swiss Challenge where other groups will be invited to make offers. Under the Swiss Challenge, the original bidder which is San Miguel Corporation has the right to match any better proposal. Meantime, other infrastructure projects approved by NEDA are the P50-billion Subic-Clark railway project, the Clark International Airport expansion project which costs P12.55 billion. Also included among the approved projects are the Ambal-Simuay river and Rio Grande de Mindanao river flood control projects that cost P39.22 billion, the Pasig-Marikina river and Manggahan floodway bridges costing P27.36 billion and lastly, the bridge construction acceleration project for socio-economic development costing P27.37 billion. The country’s integrated disaster risk reduction and climate change programs will also get added measures in low-lying areas of Pampanga bay as well as our rural agro-enterprise partnership. The Davao Food Complex project worth P1.02 billion and the restructuring of the Integrated Natural Resources and Environment Management Project worth P7.2 billion, the Integrated Marin Enterprise Monitoring System, and the New Centennial Water Source-Kaliwa Dam project worth P14.32 billion round up the approved infrastructure projects recently approved by the NEDA Board. There are 8 other projects confirmed by NEDA through ad referendum which are connected to the Official Development Assistance of the Arterial Bypass project, the Growth Corridors in the Mindanao road sector, the Chico River Pump Irrigation, the New Bohol Airport construction, and the Samar Pacific Coastal Road, and the Jalaur River Multipurpose project.

San miguel Airport Proposal - Bizwatch
 
03:23
There is a looming battle to build a much-needed new and better airport among the country’s top tycoons. We are talking about the San Miguel Corporation conglomerate and on the other side the venture between Belle Corporation of the Sy family and the Solar Group. There is no doubt that flight traffic has increased over the years, and it is expected to increase even more in the coming years. All Asia Resources & Reclamation Corporation, a joint venture of the Sy-owned Belle Corporation and the Solar Group of the Tieng family and the San Miguel Corporation conglomerate are now poised to bring their solution to this problem with their own proposals to the Philippine government. All-Asia Resources & Reclamation Corporation is proposing to spend $20 billion to build an airport and seaport near a naval and air base in Sangley Point which is South of Manila. On the other hand, the San Miguel group is proposing to build a new airport at a cost of P700 billion or US$14 billion in a 2,500 hectare property in Bulacan, which is North of Manila. At present, we are recording about 60 million air passengers passing through Manila, and our capacity is only at 31 million. The International Air Transport Association foresees that this figure could rise up to 140 million by 2035, so it is very clear that we need new airport facilities. In its proposal, San Miguel Corporation wants to build four runways with a length of 3.5 kilometers and a width of 600 meters. This facility could serve 100 million passengers a year. San Miguel proposes to increase this to six runways which can serve up to 150 million passengers. Their proposed airport will also link San Miguel’s elevated rail project and will complement the airport in the former Clark military airbase. This offer also does not carry any guarantee or subsidy from the government as San Miguel will undertake all the costs involved in building the new airport, according to Mr. Ramon Ang, president and CEO of San Miguel Corporation. The present airport has four terminals and currently serves about 40 million air travellers. The All-Asia Resources and Reclamation proposal, however, which is P6 billion higher than that of San Miguel, includes the development of a sea port in addition to a new international airport.

The fast-growing conglomerate under Dennis A. Uy, that is the Udenna Group, is investing up to $5 billion within a span of ten years for the development of Clark Global City. The Clark Global City is envisioned to become the new central business district in Central Luzon. With this vision, Dennis Uy’s Udenna Group is investing up to $5 billion within 10 years for the development of the Clark Global City. The Udenna Group conglomerate has already completed the master plan of the 177-hectare prime property development that it has recently acquired within the Clark Freeport Zone in Mabalacat, Pampanga. The Clark Global City is expected to host top-notch office buildings, high-end retail outlets, and academic and sports centers among others. Clark Global City will have an iconic tower, a hotel and casino, an urban park and modern support services and amenities. According to Mr. Dennis Uy, CEO and Chairman of Udenna, “Clark Global City will offer a global business destination and spur economic transformation outside of Metro Manila, complementing the government’s efforts to spread growth across the country.” For now, 47 hectares of the 177-hectare development have been completed with world class horizontal infrastructure built to withstand 100-year storm evens. Included here is a 10-hectare entertainment complex, one hectare of which is for a casino that will be developed by Udenna. Managing Director for Clark Global City Wilfredo Placino said that the development cost will be funded by the sub-lease of lots at P99,000 per square meter that will be offered to local and foreign developers. The company expects to close the deal with local developers. They also plan to go on a road show in Hong Kong, Beijing and other parts of China as well as Tokyo, hoping to convince foreign developers to invest in the project. Clark Globa City has secured a 25-year extension in the lease agreement with the government on top of the original 50-year lease agreement. Eight years has already been used up by the previous owner. This means that locators and developers can still use their lots for 67 years.

It looks like the Philippines is now one of the stronger players in the Asian region in the animation industry. The Philippine animation industry announced recently that the country is now generating $153 million in revenues and now employs 11,000 full-time employees. The Philippines got into the world of animation only in the 1980’s, way behind many other nations. Now, we have more than 100 animation studios in the country, proof that this industry is gaining a foothold in the global demand, according to the Board of Investments. DTI Commercial AttacheFroilanPamintuan was quoted as saying that the “Philippines is actually seen as potential partner for growth by various companies from Japan, France, India and other key players in terms of training, development of content and other key areas.” At the Palais des Festival in Cannes, France, Philippine animation studios led by the Animation Council of the Philippines showcased the digital capabilities of the Philippines at the International Market of Communication Program. The Philippine Embassy in Paris, the DTI and the Dept. of Information and Communication were in full support to the Philippine contingent. Among the Philippine companies that participated at the French trade show were the ASI Animation Studios, Synergy 88, RenderBee, Toon City and Toon City Academy, TeamApp, Top Peg Animation Studios, and 88Storey Films. These Filipino companies showcased their exceptional capabilities in web and mobile games applications, visual technology, animation for film and the internet, as well as production of audio-visual presentations and commercials for television, film and the internet. There is a growing demand for content and creative services in Europe, and the Philippine companies that participated in the International Market of Communications Program in Cannes, France expect to generate new business engagements for the content industry in the Philippines. France has the largest animation industry in Europe. It is also the third largest in the world, so the Philippine Embassy in Paris sees a lot of opportunities opening for Filipino players in this industry.

NEW CLARK CITY LAUNCH   BIZWATCH
 
02:15
And now for our final business issue this week. What’s new at the New Clark City, formerly called the Clark Green City? Well, actual construction of this project has already started. The BCDA or Bases Conversion and Development Authority is now targeting to re-launch the metropolis project this October. With the re-launch of the New Clark City this October, BCDA president and CEO Vivencio Dizon is targeting the completion of the project by 2022. The cost of the total project could reach billions of US dollars, according to the BCDA president, but for now, the development cost alone which is the initial cost of the program will run to around P20 billion. Even with the mind-boggling costs involved in developing and completing the New Clark City, the government is bent on going ahead with it. The project is one of the long-term solutions of the Duterte Administration in decongesting Metro Manila. The 9,450 hectare New Clark City is located in Tarlac. With the initial development stage of the construction, roads will be developed as well as other infrastructure requirements and commercial spaces. There will be a national government center, a food processing terminal and an international food market. The metropolis project will also include a mixed income development housing. A big part of the vast area will be reserved as open spaces for agricultural and forest lands to go with the green city concept. In developing the new city, BCDA will be partnering with other governments like Japan and Singapore, considered some of the best developers in the region. It will be home to some 1.12 million people and 800,000 workers and is projected to contribute a gross output of P1.57 trillion per year to the Philippine economy.

JICA Urban Infrastructure Development Plan In Davao - Bizwatch
 
02:40
The Japan International Cooperation Agency or JICA is set to put together an urban infrastructure development plan and capacity-building project for Davao City. Mr. Ken Kumazawa, team leader for the project that will be undertaken by JICA announced this in a recent news conference. The JICA executive said that “this is a very unique approach that has not been implemented in other cities in the Philippines. Kumazawa met with the city government officials and officials of the National Economic and Development Authority or NEDA in the Davao region to discuss this latest project. The project will support the infrastructure development plan of both Davao city and NEDA. The goal is to improve Davao city’s competitiveness, safety from disasters and general urban conditions. The plan will also focus on land use, roads, urban transportation, water supply and solid waste management. The short term target is completion by 2022 while the long term target is 2045. In partnering with Davao City, JICA aims to make the Japanese City of Kitakyushu in the Fukuoka province as the model city. Both cities are similar in size. The long term plans of the project include the establishment of an environment-friendly Davao City. It was in November of 2016 that Davao formed an environmental partnership with Kitakyushu. This Japanese city suffered from serious industrial pollution problems in the 1960s. By 1980, the city was able to eliminate these pollution problems to become one of the most advance environmental cities in Asia. With this in mind, the Japanese government through JICA, hopes to establish the Kitakyushu model for other cities to emulate in their sustainable city development programs. Apart from waste management and water supply, the Kitakyushu model also addresses issues like energy management and environmental preservation. Mass transit and road network will likewise be studied so both parties can come up with systems that will work for Davao City.

Dr. Bodo Goerlich, president of the German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry announced that Germany is seriously looking at investing in the Philippines. IN a recent interview with the German executive, Dr.Goerlich said that his country is particularly interested in Philippine electronics and car parts manufacturing. Even as the major powers are now focusing their sights on Asia, our proficiency in te English language is once again proving to be our biggest advantage over our neighbours.

Apparently, our lower production and labor costs are also advantages working in our favour. To quote Dr. Goerlich, “These are very competitive, that’s why a lot of companies who have to build car parts and need very high safety and quality levels, they are producing here in the Philippines. The Philippines is very competitive at the moment, it is growing at the moment.” As he made this pronouncement, he also urged the Philippine government to allow for more competitive markets and create an environment conducive to foreign investments.

DESIGN PLAN FOR BORACAY REHABILITATION   BIZWATCH
 
02:19
In just over a week, the country will see the total closure of Boracay Island. However, at this late stage, the national government has not formally adopted a masterplan that will facilitate the 6-month rehabilitation program for this top tourist destination. The local government of Malay has turned to urban planner Architect Felino Palafox to design a plan for the rehabilitation of Boracay. However, the total closure of the island is scheduled for April 26, and no plans have been formalized for the massive job of rehabilitation. The Palafox group is the only company that has been tapped by the local government of Malay to come up with a rehabilitation plan for Boracay. Architect Felino Palafox said that the national government has indeed asked his group to present their Boracay Integrated Tourism Plan but no time line has been mentioned. Their contract with the local government is until September, and the Palafox group has been requested to fast track the project. According to Palafox, the master plan will first deal with an open pit garbage dam, untreated sewer, overhead wires, and the sidewalks. The architect is also suggesting the installation of elevated boardwalks by the beach, the establishment of transit stations, fixing of road transport corridors, widening of walkways, provision of bike lanes, and the deployment of bus rapid transit. The architect said that the implementation of his master plan could cost the national government billions of pesos. The master plan has been divided into several phases, but the total rehabilitation of Boracay could take years. The 6-month rehabilitation will only cover corrective measures in fixing the problems of Boracay.

Bo's Coffee   Proud Pinoy
 
15:30
Steve Benitez is an icon among Filipino entrepreneurs, he who has put the spotlight on Philippine coffee these past several years. He is known more widely as the father of Bo’s Coffee, a home-grown brew that is loved and patronized by the Filipino coffee community. Steve has always been an entrepreneur, having started other businesses before he started Bo’s Coffee in 1996. Steve now shares that before he started it, all the studies he made indicated that he shouldn’t even open the business because it didn’t look like a feasible one. Back in 1996, coffee was just given away after meals in a restaurant and more people were familiar with instant coffee. Steve’s concept was unheard of but the young entrepreneur went on with his concept anyway. In the first 3 months of operation, he had sales of P300 to less than a thousand a day which wasn’t even enough to cover his rent of P10,000 per month, but he plodded on. He dug his heels in and on the sixth month, there was a steady increase in sales. By the eighth month, he opened his second store, and the rest, as they say, is history. His concept involved elevating the coffee experience by introducing coffee that uses espresso as a base, definitely a first here. It was a purely coffee business with a very limited beverage and food line-up. People were intimidated by the special coffee choices and would not order the cappuccinos and lattes.

Business and Leisure | Strictly Business: Lugaw Republic
 
09:32
For Strictly Business this week, we have an entrepreneur whose business concept revolves around a really Filipino staple. This business can now be found all over the archipelago, and there are more stores coming. Meet Bienvenido M. Cruz Jr., or Benjo Cruz as many know him. Benjo finished two courses in college: B.S. Nursing in our Lady of Fatima and Banking and Finance at the University of the East. Having finished two full courses in college, one would imagine that Benjo would end up in the corporate world. However, he probably was born to be an entrepreneur because he went the working route but earned and saved enough as an OFW to go back home and see how he can be in business for himself. Lesson no. 1- know your market and study the needs and wants of that market. That is exactly what Benjo did. He did not plunge into the business just because he had some capital and there was a space waiting for him. His market was decidedly the masa market, those who want a hot filling meal that does not cost an arm and a leg. The casual employees, PUV drivers, students and those who want value for their money comprise a big sector of our economy, and Benjo knew that. He also knew that perception plays a big part as far as the consumers are concerned. There are quite a few ambulant vendors selling the lowly lugaw, but Benjo took his product several notches higher by first, bring his stores to the malls and second, showing them that having a satisfying, affordable meal can mean hygienic and healthy as well. How did he start? How much capital did he need? Benjo, the successful entrepreneur, is still single, and with no wife or children to support, his big family is what he has. Lugaw Republic, Benjo relates, did not become successful overnight. At first, business was slow but as time went by, those who tasted his lugaw kept coming back. By word of mouth, his customers increased steadily. His mantra for his lugawan is Masarap, Mura, Malinis. And of course there are still challenges that he meets even as his business has stabilized. And because he has not faltered or gone easy in the way he conducts his business, he makes sure that his loyal customers, those who form the core of his business, always keep coming back. Having started only in late 2005, Benjo has gone a long way for a franchisor. Benjo’s franchisees must be really contended with how Lugaw Republic is doing because he has several of them with multiple stores. One, Benjo says, has 15 franchise stores. Of the 200 Lugaw Republic stores across the country, 70% of them are franchises.

NAIA Rehabilitation Proposal by Megawide and GMR   Bizwatch
 
03:24
We train our sights on the country’s biggest airport the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. It is no secret that our airport is among the worst in the world. Now, the developer of Mactan-Cebu Airport has a proposal to decongest and rehabilitate NAIA. The partners who developed Mactan-Cebu International Airport, Megawide Corporation and GMR, have submitted a proposal to rehabilitate and decongest NAIA. The proposal which would cost U$3 billion aims to accomplish this and sustain it for the next 18 years. It took no less than three years for the partnership to finalize this proposal. If accepted, GMR and Megawide Corporation seek to address the capacity problem of NAIA and maximize the congested airport’s airside and terminal capacities. Mr. Louie Ferrer, speaking for the consortium, revealed that their team has transformed Delhi INtrnational Airport, one of the worst airports before, into what it is now—one of th top five best airports in the world. Likewise, they have transformed Mactan-Cebu International Airport into the 2016 Best Regional Airport in Asia Pacific. For GMR-Megawide, the primary problem of NAIA is capacity. Because of our limited airfield capacity, our capability to accommodate more flights is severely affected according to Mr.Ferrer. Added to this is NAIA’s reduced ability to control delays related to aircraft movements which is turn worsens congestion in the airport. The proposal thus seeks to enhance the airport’s capacity and efficiency as well as reduce airside and landside congestion. The $3 billion proposal is divided into three phases. The first phase which will be carried out on the first and second year will focus on boosting NAIA’s airside capacity and implementing terminal improvements by building full-length parallel taxiways for both runways, additional Rapid-Exit Taxiways for the primary runway, and extend the secondary runway. ON year 3 and 4, phase 2 will commence with the introduction of key improvement measures that will elevate the airport to world-class efficiency standards. On the fifth and sixth year, the consortium will build future capacity for NAIA. GMR Megawide believes that with their proposed solutions, we can increase airfield capacity up to 1000aircraft movements a day. This is a 30 – 35% increase from the present 730 aircraft movements/day. For peak hours, aircraft handling capacity will be increased by 50%, from the current 40 to 60. GMR Megawide also promises that within 24 months of taking over operations, they will rehabilitate and expand the existing terminals to double the space and result in over 700,000 sq. meters of terminal area. When completed, the airside facilities and terminals shall be able to handle 72 million passengers.

TAIWAN AQUACULTURE TO INVEST IN THE PHILIPPINES   BIZWATCH
 
03:10
The First Taiwan Aquaculture Trade Mission held recently in the Philippines was a big success. The leading aquaculture companies in Taiwan are going to invest in the Philippines to make the country a production hub for seafood exports to Taiwan and other ASEAN countries. Ten of the largest aquaculture companies in Taiwan participated in the first Taiwan Aquaculture Trade Mission to the Philippines held at the Manila Hotel. For our part, at least 70 Filipino aquaculture companies likewise attended the event, particularly the networking and business matching session of the trade mission. The Taiwanese delegates are looking at crab, shrimp and fish for the export market, and this is good news for our local aquaculture businessmen. Earlier this year, the Philippines and Taiwan signed a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate in the promotion of aquaculture in the Philippines. Ours is largely an agricultural country while Taiwan has advanced technologies that can help the industry. Taiwan is known as the kingdom of grouper fish farmers. With its history of over 300 years in aquaculture, Taiwan has a global reputation for major advances in mass production and virus control. In 2016 alone, Taiwan exported some 700,000 metric tons of seafood such as grouper, tuna, bonito and squid. That is equivalent to US$1.6 billion and the biggest importing countries were the US, China and Thailand. But also in 2016, Taiwan imported 450,000 metric tons of $1.145 billion worth of shrimp, lobster and abalone mainly from Norway, Japan, China and Vietnam. The ASEAN integration is making possible a much bigger ASEAN market, and Taiwan is keen on tapping the Philippine market to be able to maximize its potentials. Bilateral trade between the Philippines and Taiwan in 2016 reached $11 billion, but the trade balance leans more favourably on Taiwan. Their exports to our country reached $8.6 billion while Philippine exports to Taiwan reached only $2.2 billion. Our biggest exports to Taiwan include generators, machineries and accessories and ICs. Taipei’s exports to Manila are fiber, iron and steel and auto parts.

SL AGRITECH TO PUT UP HYBRID RICE MODEL IN MARAWI   BIZWATCH
 
02:30
Vital support and aid continue to pour into Marawi for its rehabilitation. The latest to come to fore to rebuild Marawi City is the country’s biggest hybrid rice seeds producer, SL Agritech Corporation. SL Agritech Corporation has just partnered with ARMM or the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. The biggest hybrid rice seeds producer in the Philippines will set up a 50-hectare hybrid rice model farm in Marawi. The only problem now is to locate a suitable site that is big enough for the model farm to be set up. In a message to the Marawi people, SL Agritech Chairman Henry Lim Bon Liong said that his company SL Agritech will put up the money for this techno-demo model farm to inspire hope among the residents of the city. The production cost of the model farm, by SL Agritech estimate, will be P30,000 per hectare. The company will undertake the project together with Go Negosyo, the LGU and the Dept. of Agriculture. A model farm is nothing new in the country. However, model farms traditionally cover only one to two hectares of land. In the case of Marawi which was totally destroyed in the aftermath of the 5-month war, this is not applicable. Marawi City clearly needs a much bigger land area. In this case, SL Agritech is ready to set up a 50-hectare hybrid rice model farm in the city which is also known as the summer capital of the South because of its cool weather and higher elevation. However, even as some rice farmers grow traditional rice varieties in Marawi, SL Agritech says Marawi is not much of a rice farming location and farmers need to be educated on proper farm management. Some of the rice fields are plagued by disease and weeds so the company will be sending technical experts to help the rice farmers.

Skinsicles   Strictly Business
 
10:04
These days, more and more people are careful about the products they use on their faces and body. They are now more discerning about what touches their skin, the ingredients in any given product for example. That is probably why there are more skin care products these days, and more businesses that center on this. Meet Ms. Sheena Bognot who used to work as an accountant for a BPO company until she got bored with her job. After that, she bought books on soap-making which really got her interested and hooked on the very idea of making her own soap from scratch. She actually took a whole year off from work to study all about soap and it was only after that time that she made her very first bar of soap. But she was also aware that not too many Pinoys are aware of artisan soap unlike the more popular whitening soaps that are commercially made. After a year of careful studies, Sheena ventured into her first bar of soap, but not without sweating out her fears. She hurdled her initial fears and concerns, and then she was ready to go into business. But she didn’t have the necessary capital to start her own business, so she went about it slowly. She named her company Skinsicles, a very curious name indeed. She said she had in mind the yummy popsicle which is how she wants to project her eye-candy soaps. With the name out of the way, she made her first batch of soap then posted it in her Facebook account. It immediately got noticed and before long, her soap was getting sold. Friends bought and shared their experience with others and before long, she was starting to receive orders.
3.5 MILLION COCONUT FARMERS MAY RECEIVE CASH FROM  COCO LEVY FUND - BIZWATCH
 
03:07
FOR OUR LEAD ISSUE THIS WEEK, WE TALK ABOUT THE COCO LEVY FUND AND ITS BENEFICIARIES. WE LEARNED THAT ONLY 5% OF THE 3.5 MILLION COCONUT FARMERS WHO WERE WRONGLY TAXED DURING THE MARCOS DICTATORSHIP MAY RECEIVE DIRECT CASH FROM THE COCONUT LEVY FUND. ONLY 175,000 COCONUT FARMERS OR 5% OF THE 3.5 MILLION COCONUT FARMERS WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN BENEFICIARIES OF THE COCONUT LEVY FUND MAY RECEIVE DIRECT CASH FROM THE FUND. THE COCONUT LEVY FUND IS VALUED AT P75 BILLION. PHILIPPINE COCONUT AUTHORITY OR PCA ADMINISTRATOR BILLY ANDAL SAID THAT MOST OF THE COCO LEVY FUND WILL INSTEAD BE DISTRIBUTED AS BUNDLED FUND FOR SEVERAL COCONUT FARMER ASSOCIATIONS AND PROCESSORS. ONLY THE FEW 5% OF THE FARMERS WILL RECEIVE CASH FROM THE FUND. IF YOU WILL REMEMBER, THE COCO LEVY FUND SCAM WAS THE BIGGEST CONTROVERSY FROM 1973 TO 1982 DURING THE TERM OF FORMER PRESIDENT FERDINAND MARCOS. DURING THAT TIME, THE GOVERNMENT TAXED COCONUT FARMERS AND PROMISED TO DEVELOP THE COCONUT INDUSTRY. THE FARMERS WERE TO RECEIVE A SHARE OF THE INVESTMENTS THAT THE GOVERNMENT WOULD MAKE USING THE COCO FUNDS. A LEVY OF BETWEEN P20 AND P76 WAS DEDUCTED AUTOMATICALLY FOR EACH FARMER FOR EVERY 100 KILOS OF COPRA OF THE FIRST SALE OVER A PERIOD OF 9 YEARS. THESE FUNDS ARE BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN USED BY MARCOS AND HIS CRONIES TO PURCHASE THE UNITED COCONUT PLANTERS BANK OR UCPB AND A MAJORITY STAKE AT THE SAN MIGUEL CORPORATION, AMONG OTHER ACQUISITIONS. THE SAD THING ABOUT THESE IS THE COCONUT FARMERS WRONGLY TAXED HAVE ALREADY LOST THEIR RECEIPTS AS PROOF OF PAYMENT DURING THOSE DARK YEARS. ACCORDING TO PSA STATISTICS, THERE ARE ABOUT 3.5 MILLION COCONUT FARMERS, BUT AS REGISTRATION NEARS ITS END, ONLY 1.9 MILLION FARMERS ARE LIKELY TO REGISTER. OF THESE 1.9 MILLION FARMERS, ONLY ABOUT 5% CAN PRESENT A RECEIPT OF THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO THE FUND. AS THIS DEVELOPED, THE CONFEDERATION OF COCONUT FARMERS ORGANIZATION OF THE PHILIPPINES OR CONFED HAS WITHDRAWN ITS PETITION BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT AGAINST THE UTILIZATION OF THE COCO FUND. THE COURT IS EXPECTED TO ISSUE A TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER ON THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE FUND. FOR HIS PART, AGRICULTURE SECRETARY MANNY PIÑOL SAID THAT THE TRO IS THE ONLY LEGAL BOTTLENECK PREVENTING THE ADMINISTRATION TO DISTRIBUTE THE COCO LEVY FUNDS. FOR THOSE NOT IN THE KNOW, THE CONFED IS THE UNIFIED GROUP OF COCONUT FARMERS’ ORGANIZATIONS NATIONWIDE. IT REPRESENTS MORE THAN 95% OF THE ORGANIZED COCONUT FARMERS SECTOR IN THE PHILIPPINES.

Bohol as Premier Tourist Destination   Bizwatch
 
02:20
Bohol was the scene of sheer devastation just a few years back when a deadly typhoon cut across the island. Now, Bohol is slowly rising up to its lost glory as a premier tourist destination. Because of improvements in infrastructure as well as air connectivity, Bohol is sure to rise again. This is the message of the Dept. of Tourism to foreign as well as domestic tourists as far as Bohol is concerned. IN a recent visit of Tourism Secretary Wanda Corazon Teo to Panglao in Bohol, she lauded the Malingin bulk surface water project that was designed to provide potable water to up to 15,000 households in the area. Furthermore, the Trousim Secretary also commended the improved air connectivity to Bohol, adding that there are more direct flights from Europe to Bohol. The water treatment facility and distribution center in Panglao costing P1.5 billion is a project of RichliCorporation. Its aim is to provide potable water not only to Panglao but also to Dauis and several barangays in the city of TAgbilaran. It also aims to provide potable water to the area at more affordable rates. Bohol is one of the emerging tourist destinations in the country, as identified by no less than the Dept. of Tourism. When the organizers of the Miss Universe pageant brought the candidates to Bohol last December, they all marvelled at the natural beauty of the island.

The government is actually eyeing a total of 36 infrastructure projects by the end of 2017. Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia announced that out of the 75 flagship projects of the government, NEDA has actually approved 18 infrastructure projects and is set to approve another 18 projects before the year ends. Priority will be given to projects that have established their need and readiness, and the NEDA official said that there will be no biad towards a particular financing mode. Among The 18 NEDAapproved projects are the Bonifacio Global City to Ortigas Centre road link, the new terminal building of the Clark International Airport, The New Cebu International container port, MRT-LRT common station, the Iloilo, Bacolod, Davao, Laguindingan airports and New Bohol airports. Several port and rail projects are also included in these 18 NEDA-approved projects. The present administration wants to put the next six years as the showcase for its “build buildbuild agenda”. Working towards the implementation of its “Golden Age of Infrastructure” target, the government would need P8.44 trillion or US$168 billion over the next 6 years. This will necessitate an increase in public spending of 7.45 per cent increase over the present 5.32% of GDP by 2022.

Black Wing Marikina   Strictly Business
 
14:57
Meet Mr. Buddy Tan, owner and manager of Black Wing Shoes that are proudly Marikina made. Buddy graduated with a degree in Political Science and worked with several of our politicians as a freelance consultant on the grass root level, rubbing elbows with fisherfolks and farmers. Before that, he worked in a bank and in a few IT firms before he decided to join the family business. Buddy focused on the big shoe brands that were coming into the country and came up with styles and designs to rival these in terms of value and fashion. Actually, Buddy started out making leather sandals to compete in the luxury leather market, but these did not do well and he turned his attention to shoes. This was the time when everyone was into mass production of easy to produce styles. Buddy did not want to go into that direction, so he studied the European and American brands, watched the videos of their factory tours which included the process of luxury shoe making and decided he could incorporate these ideas into the local market. His workers eventually relented and followed his ways. The first pair they made was for his wedding, and he was surprised that he could wear the leather shoes the whole day without much discomfort. It is a fact that the average Filipino guy puts a whole lot of premium on comfort, so many are averse to wearing leather shoes on a regular basis. Buddy wanted to dispel this notion and set about to make leather shoes that are as comfortable as sandals.

BZWATCH - 7/11 PHILIPPINES CONTINUES TO GROW
 
04:39
The highly-successful local franchise of 7/11 owned by the Philippine Seven Corporation or PSCrecently held its annual stockholders meeting. The local licensee reported an increase of 16.6 per cent in their annual net income for 2016. PSC president and CEO Jose Victor Paterno reported in their annual stockholders’ meeting that PSC ended the previous year with a total of 1,995 stores. 711 also opened a record number of 410 new stores in 2016. 2015, net profits for 7/11 was at P1.0 billion; in 2016, this figure rose to P1.2 billion. The company not only opened over 400 new stores, it also established new distribution centers, warehouses and regional headquarters to cope with the growing expansion. Stock prices likewise increased to P135.00 per share, which means that increase price earnings ratio came up to 53 times, with trading volume going much higher. Clearly, the company is not in need of more operating capital to drive it to success. PSC President Paterno’s drive now is towards nurturing the Filipino entrepreneurial spirit, and franchising a 7/11 store is no longer that expensive, and the company has simplified the system. With this, the sharing between the mother company and the franchisee now has a new application. With new systems in place, Paterno is giving themselves time to see the results, 7/11 stores now have more shelves to fill with more new products. The company’s improved earnings were driven for the most part by the higher retail sales both from corporate-owned and franchise-operated stores. Figures have it that in 2015, sales stood at P25.8 billion in 2015. In 2016, this surged to P31.8 billion. We asked Mr. Paterno how much, on the average, does a 7/11 store sell. Undoubtedly, 7/11 is the market leader in the convenience retail sector. They have ramped up their advertising and promotions campaign and their customer loyalty program as well. Expect more new product offerings and remodelled 7/11 stores in the next five years.
