Highlights of Iloilo’s 41st Paraw Regatta Festival kick off

ILOILO
CITY, Feb. 16 (PNA) -- The two-day highlights of the 41st Iloilo Paraw
Festival kicked off Saturday with more than 50 sailboats parading at the
stretch of Villa Beach in Arevalo this city for the Slalom Race.
Slalom
served as an added attraction to the main highlight on Sunday that
would showcase sailboats racing in the more than 28-kilometer stretch of
the Iloilo to Guimaras Strait.
It was aimed at enhancing the
seamanship of the crew in handling and maneuvering the ‘Paraw’ under all
wind conditions in a preset race course.

Mabilog and Iloilo Paraw Regatta Foundation Inc. (IPRFI) chairman Manny
Villa Jr. are expecting that this year’s sailing event would be more
successful.

incorporate in its design the sails of native outrigger boat showcasing
the oldest sailing event in Asia, stressed Mabilog.

credited Villa for being instrumental in tourism and cultural promotions
through the Paraw Regatta festival as well as in restoration of
heritage buildings in Calle Real.
The City Hall extended P1.6-million budget while the Office of Cong. Jerry P. Treñas gave P300,000 cash assistance.
Paraw
Regatta is touted as largest and longest-running traditional sailing
event in Asia where colorful native outrigger boats navigate at least
20-kilometer race route in Iloilo Strait between the city and Guimaras
Island.
Themed “Ilonggo Sailing Heritage: Vibrant & Strong!”
the 2013 edition also featured special events including mini-paraw
beach race, Miss Iloilo Paraw Regatta pageant, variety show, miniature
paraw sail-painting contest, photo exhibit, miniature paraw-making
contest, seafood cooking competition, rowing and paddling, seafood
festival, photo contest, torch parade,
Also
Sinamba sa Paraw Regatta mardi gras competition, deep-sea fishing
competition, skimboarding competition, jet ski competition, Paraw Slalom
short distance race, rapid chess tournament, national Frisbee
exhibition games, national invitational womens volleyball, beach concert
and party, fireworks display, paraw sail-painting contest, and body
painting contest.

Duty Free to open in Iloilo

ILOILO CITY, Feb 15 (PNA) -- Duty Free Philippines is eyeing to soon open in Iloilo.
Mayor
Jed Patrick E. Mabilog said Friday that representatives of the Duty
Free Phils confirmed their expansion here during a recent visit at the
office of the city’s chief executive.
He noted the company is
considering three sites: inside Iloilo Airport, at the Central Business
District (CBD) in downtown Calle Real, or at the CBD in Mandurriao
district and their plans are expected to be finalized in three-month
time.
“The Duty Free opening will create convenience for
travelers. It will also put Iloilo City stronger in a position to become
a premier city by 2015,” Mabilog stressed.
“They (officials of
Duty Free Philippines) were surprised to see Iloilo a progressive city
in this part of the country,” the mayor said.
The
Iloilo Airport now serving direct flights to and from Hong Kong and
Singapore has prompted Duty Free Philippines to put up shop here which
attracts balikbayans, Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and tourists.

City gov’t goes aggressive in promoting Iloilo City

ILOILO
CITY, Feb 15 (PNA) -- Iloilo City is all set to accommodate more
investors amid the already growing development in the metropolis.
Mayor
Jed Patrick E. Mabilog on Friday announced that the city government
will soon come up with a business portfolio as a tool in aggressively
campaigning for more investors to pour in and consequently open more
opportunities not only for this city but neighboring local government
units as well.
The mayor will leave Monday for Malaysia to join
Planning and Development Officer Jose Roni Peñalosa, Business
Development Management Officer Francis Cruz, Treasurer Katherine Tingson
and Investment and Promotions Board chair Felix Tiu who compose the
team that will work on the portfolio.
The city government was able
to obtain a grant from the United States Agency for International
Development (USAID) for the portfolio, he added.
He also said that
they decided to bring their work to Malaysia so that they could have a
focus and upon their return the material will be ready for review and
printing.
It will become part of their documents when the city
government joins trade missions, trade fairs and investment forum, he
said. Also they will try to identify big businesses in the country and
invite them to invest in this city.
Prior Mabilog announced that
aside from other challenges that he identified during his recent State
of the City Address (SOCA) his administration is now responsive to the
three challenges that he mentioned during his inaugural address when he
assumed as mayor more than two years ago.
These include the need for efficient supply of electricity, solution to flooding and sufficient supply of potable water.
The
need for electricity was addressed with the establishment of a
coal-fired power plant by the Panay Energy Development Corporation
(PEDC) that was inaugurated by President Benigno S. Aquino in 2011. PEDC
is also eyeing to expand the capacity of its plant in Ingore, Lapaz.
On
flooding, the Iloilo Flood Control Project is already in place and
operational. The city government complemented it with the rehabilitation
and establishment of drainage systems in areas where there is massive
flooding.
Further,
the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has been tasked to
work on a master plan for the city’s drainage program.

Int’l university theater association gathers in Iloilo to mark National Arts Month celebration

ILOILO CITY, Feb 15 (PNA) -- Members of the International University Theater Association (IUTA)-Philippine Center gathered at the University of San Agustin (USA) here for a three-day conference and workshop marking the celebration of the National Arts Month.

The conference gathered world-class theater and arts teachers and practitioners who shared best practices including the role of theater in campuses.

The conference also showcased the city's rich heritage with the participants given an informative Iloilo Heritage Tour on Friday afternoon.

In welcoming the visitors to the oldest university in Western Visayas, vice-president for academic affairs Fr. Harold Ll. Rentoria, OSA, underscored that “culture and arts had always been a vital part of the administrators, personnel, students and alumni of the University of San Agustin.”

He took pride of the workshop venue, the school’s auditorium, as a “silent witness to the richness and diversity of many cultural productions that entertained people from all walks of life.”

“The auditorium is being housed by the Urdaneta Hall, a structure constructed in 1939 and is considered the oldest building in the University. We take pride in this beautiful structure because this historical edifice is the only remaining building of the old Colegio San Agustin, surviving bombings in Iloilo City during the Second World War,” he stated.

The three-day gathering that will cap Friday night was full of workshops and demonstrations to include topics on Infusing Social and Cultural Values in Playwriting; Weaving Indigenous Dance Forms on Broadway; Sintang Dalisay by Tanghalang Ateneo; Shakespeare: A Distant Mirror to Examine Today’s Social Problems; Igal Movement, “Dance of the Southern Seas;” and Ciento Cincuenta, Mga Bagong Kabanata ng Noli at Fili.

These topics were presented by award winning and respected writers and theater arts experts to include Christian Valles, Miguel Braganza, Ricky Abad, Dr. Matthew Sta. Maria, Nick Lazo, Al Tesoro, Eric Divinagracia, Tanya Lopez and Rudy Reveche.

The event also coincided with USA’s commemoration of its 60th anniversary as the first university in Western Visayas.

Manila group acquires Iloilo hospital for P700M

ILOILO CITY, June 17 (PNA) – The Great Saviour International Hospital (GSIH) in this city is now fully owned, managed and operated by the Manila-based hospital The Medical City (TMC).

The reported purchase amount of P150 million is included in the P700-million investment package pledged last year by TMC president and chief executive officer (CEO) Alfredo RA Bengzon and TMC chairman Augusto P. Sarmiento.

GSIH was formerly managed and operated by The Medical City. The turnover of full ownership was held today, June 17 in this city, which was also highlighted by the launching of a cardiovascular program with cutting edge technology in the newly renamed The Medical City Iloilo.

Bengzon said the hospital was the first to offer world-class cardiovascular program in Western Visayas under its national expansion program to bring quality health and heart care to more Filipinos in the countryside.

Dr. Evangeline Johnson, GSIH president and chief executive remains the biggest stockholder of the renamed and upgraded city hospital. Johnson is also the owner of Our Lady of Mercy Specialized Hospital in Bacolod City.

Launched at the TMC Iloilo were new and advanced hospital facilities such as Catheterization Laboratory presented by Iloilo Gov. Arthur D. Defensor; newly renovated operating room and Intensive Care Unit presented by health regional director Ariel Valencia; CT Scan; mammography and 2D Echo facilities presented by Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog; international patient service center by tourism regional director Edwin Trompeta and expanded consultation clinics by pulmonologist Dr. Rene Juaneza.

Bengzon said the hospital adheres to a unique patient partnership philosophy where patients and doctors openly and equally collaborate towards effective, highly customized health care.

Investors said that medical tourism in Iloilo has flourished as international visitors came to see Boracay Island and other tourist attractions in Panay Island, especially Iloilo.

With the localization of world class medical care facilities, international visitors are assured of proper medical care.

Similarly, TMC Iloilo is not running from its corporate social responsibility in the community. Of the 22 open heart surgeries conducted at the hospital, 60 percent is on indigent patients. Hospital services are open to everybody whether the patient is rich or poor.

The new management team is now evaluating the status of present hospital staff and doctors. A complete staffing pattern will be completed by first week of July this year. (PNA)
