In a social media post on Thursday, November 30, Governor Erico Aris Aumentado said in an advisory that he met with officials of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) to discuss the plan.

“Kung ma-aprubahan kini, himoon ang maong lugar isip usa ka IT Park nga pwedeng mahimutangan sa mga BPO locators nga makahatag og dugang trabaho ngadto sa mga higala natong Bol-anon,” Aumentado added.

(If this will be approved, that particular area will be made into an IT Park which can possibly accommodate BPO locators that can provide more jobs to our friends, our Bol-anon.)

This early, Aumentado said several business had already expressed their enthusiasm to invest in their province.

“Daghan nang mga kompanya ang excited nga musulod diri sa probinsya, mao nga sa pagdevelop sa old Airport, makatabang kini alang sa kanunayng pag-abante sa Bohol,” he said.

(Many companies are excited to enter the province. That is why in developing the old airport, this can help in the development of Bohol.)
