Developing networks and engaging with fellow journalists in the district, The Business Primer attended the College Editor’s Guild of the Philippines (CEGP) Negros Grand Relaunching Program at the Vianney Hall, Bacolod Cathedral, on September 2.

Moreover, as we, Primers, engage in different student publications here in Negros, we feel delighted and privileged to be part of this relaunching of CEGP-Negros,” said Laiza Grace Pablito, an attendee of the event representing The Business Primer.
