PECO: Give us chance to improve our service

By: Tara Yap

PANAY Electric Co. (PECO) is asking the public to be patient as it implements its service improvements amidst calls of the city government to Congress to review its franchise as the only power distributor in Iloilo City.

“There is no need to review the franchise,” said Engr. Randy Pastolero, PECO vice president for operations.

City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog has earlier urged Congress to review PECO’s franchise given by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) after its 20-MVA substation in Gen. Luna suffered a mini-explosion last May 2 and resulted to intermittent power blackouts.

Since then, PECO has been facing criticisms for its alleged unreliable service that resulted to P3 million in losses suffered by the city’s business community and irked local residents during that scorching summer day.

Boracay feels brunt of China’s travel warning

By: Francis Allan L. Angelo

THE DEPARTMENT of Tourism (DOT) in Western Visayas said Chinese tourists have started cancelling their reservations in Boracay Island.

DOT regional director Helen Catalbas said 55 room reservations made by visitors from mainland China have been cancelled after the People’s Republic of China warned its citizens from visiting the Philippines.

The travel warning was issued amidst the tension between the Philippine and Chinese governments over the ownership of the Panatag shoal.

Catalbas added that a Beijing-Kalibo airline flight, which flies six times a week, has been cancelled after the advisory was issued.
