Neri: Happy occasions

There was a festive air at Mactan Newtown on the day of the capsule laying ceremony for the Mactan Expo Center, led by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., who stated that the project is “a source of pride not only for Cebu but for the entire country.” The two-level standalone convention center is the latest development in the 30-hectare township of property giant Megaworld, the real estate arm of Alliance Global Group. CEO Kevin Tan announced, “We hope to build another iconic landmark not just for Mactan but for the entire province of Cebu.” Looking proud and pleased was Gov. Gwen Garcia, who has been fully supportive of the new developments in the township, as well as Mactan’s power couple, Mayor Junard and Congresswoman Cindi Chan.

The Mactan Expo Center will be the first of its kind hereabouts—a standalone convention and exposition center with state-of-the-art facilities, offering a total of 10,000 square meters of space in its two levels. Definitely another attraction for our island province!
