The Association of Negros Producers (ANP) Showroom/Hub was inaugurated, today, led by Gov. Bong Lacson, provincial officials, ANP officers headed by its president, Arlene Infante, and other guests.
The showroom features proudly Negros-made products and souvenirs.
Gov. Bong Lacson encouraged all local producers to continue to innovate and create world-class products, and to always aim for excellence, as the provincial government will always be supportive of such endeavors.
The ANP was born during a crisis that happened decades ago, and portrays success and inspiring stories on self-reliance.
It is located along the South Capitol Road next to Negros Forest Park. The hub will also serve as a training center, retail platform, and corporate offices of ANP.
“Now, as our province, together with the entire world is in the thick of another global crisis, we again, as a people, face this adversity with the same Negrense spirit of resilience, ingenuity, and hope we courageously displayed in the past when we had our first trade fair,” said Gov. Lacson.
He also said that the province is fortunate because of the ANP’s initiative of opening opportunities to small and medium enterprises.
“Even in the midst of a pandemic, let us show the world that Negros is more than just sugar but a place where people succeed, and healthy economy can advance by what we make and innovate,” he added.
