After struggling to operate and manage the Ilocos Norte Hotel and Convention Center now known as Plaza Del Norte, the Ilocos Norte government is planning to privatize its management again reportedly after some losses were incurred for the past few years. The newly renovated Plaza Del Norte had its soft opening in March 2010 but after incurring about P4 million in deficit, it was taken over by the Ilocos Norte government under the administration of Gov. Ma. Imelda “Imee” R. Marcos.
