Transco official assures stable power in Cebu during ASEAN Summit

by Roberto M. Cabardo

Cebu City (21 September) -- Seventy nine days before the ASEAN Summit, a top official from National Transmission Company (TransCo) assured that there will be electricity during the international event that Cebu is hosting in December.

This was disclosed by Engr. Crispin Lamayan, AVP for the Visayas System Operations of the transmission company. During the weekly Kapihan sa PIA, he said that TRANSCO has already made arrangements with power generators and other key industry players for contingency plans should power supply drop during the conduct of the summit which will be attended by delegates not only from the member countries but also from other parts of the world who may have trade and diplomatic relations with these group of Asian nations.

"We cannot afford even a minute of brownout," said Lamayan.

Officials from local and national government with the help of the private sector have been actively involved in the preparation for the ASEAN Summit which will be held on December 11-14, 2006 in some places in Cebu City, considered to be the tourism hub of the Philippines.

Among the heads of state who are expected to attend the summit are those from Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Timor Leste and the Philippines.

Historically, the summit in Cebu is going to be the second to be held in the Philippines. The first was in the country's capital city, Manila, in 1987. (PIA Cebu) [top]
