South Cotabato economic enterprises gain P22M sales

Koronadal City—The economic enterprises of South Cotabato, which is composed of the cultural gym, sports complex, the tourist attraction Seven Falls and PROTECH Center, earned a total of P22M income in 2018, General Manager Edgar Prias presented during the weekly Kapihan sa Kapitolyo.

Sales of the Seven Falls got a record-breaking revenue among the four government enterprises, Prias said.

In December alone, the Seven Falls earned at least P9M.

The sales of Seven Falls picked up during months of April and December based on the record.

Meanwhile, experts have already conducted a soil test to determine the viability of the construction of a cable car.

Landscaping around the first falls is underway this year.

On the other hand, a new air conditioning unit was installed at the South Cotabato Gym and cultural center last month. Security and office personnel will undergo training to equip them in managing crowd during high-density activity.

Prias said the management of the sports complex strives to be the premier sports complex and provide a high-quality experience for all athletes and sports enthusiasts. The rehabilitation of the rubberized oval is already in the bidding process.

“The governor wanted to put exercises equipment along the oval to make it more accessible to the public,” Prias said.

The PROTECH Center, however, is open for private partners who like to put establishments in the free spaces at the back of the main building but, Prias said landscaping is not a priority at this moment.

“We are going to have aggressive marketing in all of our economic enterprises this year and hoping for private partnerships to level up our activities,” Prias added.
