Bacolod City – The provincial government of Negros Occidental is expecting that the Negros First Cyber Center will be completed next year after the loan needed to complete its phase 2 passed the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. noted that the project will not be completed this year as scheduled by “maybe early next year”.

He said the Monetary Bank of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas must approve first the additional P157.5-million loan from the Development Bank of the Philippines.

The remaining P22.5 million needed to complete the P180 million will be sourced from the savings of the provincial government.

“Then we will have the bidding and the construction of the Phase Two,” the governor said, adding this would take about four months.

Marañon assured that the programs and projects of the provincial government will not be affected even if some of the portion of the unrestricted funds will be aligned to fund the Cyber Center.

“It will only delay some of the projects but it will not be affected,” Marañon said.

Meanwhile, the governor disclosed he already submitted that proposed Supplemental Budger No. 2 to the SP amounting to P114,384,651, which will be appropriated from the General Fund and P33,718,830 from the Economic Enterprise.
