Victorias City Mayor Javier Miguel “Javi” Benitez went on a two-day Tour De Negros Benchmarking, visiting a total of 10 municipalities and cities in Negros Occidental, August 8 to 9.
“It was an insightful and inspiring experience for all of us. The knowledge sharing and the best practices we learned are valuable to each other,” Benitez said on his Facebook page.
Manapla, Escalante, Toboso, Sagay, Sipalay, Hinoba-an, Cauayan, Ilog, Candoni, and Kabankalan are the LGUs he visited.
“As the Negros ACE President, I intend to show full support to my fellow chief executive and members of our organization. I know they are busy with their executive functions, so I decided to visit them myself,” he said.
Victorias ABC President Councilor Richard Julius Sablan, City Planning and Development Coordinator Dr. Evangeline Alo, City Tourism Officer Marian Rica Calseña, City Information Officer Joy Famini, and Third District Geographical Coordinator Allana Montepio joined Benitez on the tour.*
