Business is flourishing in the Iloilo City public markets as it surpassed its target income in the month of June.
Iloilo City Local Economic Enterprise Office (LEEO) was able to collect P305,000 higher than its revenue projections on markets and slaughterhouse despite ongoing construction works.
“Thank you to the LEEO for performance. The collection for the month of June is P6,971,994 – target is P6.6 million. Congratulations!” stressed Mayor Jerry P. Treñas.
Total collections also increased by P4-million to P45-million from January to June this year compared to P41-million during the same period last year.
Rehabilitation is now being implemented on all district markets including Iloilo Central and Terminal Markets in City Proper, Jaro Big Market, Arevalo, La Paz, and Mandurriao markets.
Temporary stalls set up nearby have been provided to vendors to continue economic activities.
With the modern markets, it is expected to create improved services and convenience for consumers, including clean facilities, parking spaces, and flood-free areas, as well as boost small business and promote tourism potentials. (Iloilo City PIO)
