One-stop-shop of San Jose saves time for business, gains investments

by Pilar S. Mabaquiao

SAN JOSE, Antique Jan 10 (PIA) -- The one-stop-shop for business registration of San Jose de Buenavista has saved business precious time and attracted investments.

Dionisio Jubilan, owner of the Binirayan Cottages, a tourist inn in the town of San Jose is one among the hundreds of business registrants who availed of the services of the one-stop-shop set-up in front of the Municipal Hall of the town.

“It was convenient and saves time for the registrants,” said Jubilan referring to the simplified requirements he undertook to renew his business permit to operate.

The One-stop-shop business permit registration in San Jose is open until January 20.

Concerned departments of the Municipal Government, national government agencies are lined-up in one location. There is no need for the applicant to go to different offices and seek for approval or have their signatures in the application form, disclosed Jubilan.

San Jose Mayor Rony Molina said that as local chief executive, "we should be facilitative of the needs of the business group in our locality to attract more investment".

“For businessmen, time is gold, Molina emphasized.

“There’s a need to hasten the process and short cut bureaucratic requirements to create an enabling business environment and encourage the growth of business sector,” he explained.

In addition, the Department of Trade and Industry(DTI) who is also a close partner of LGU San Jose in this endeavor, commended Mayor Molina for personally supervising the operation of one-stop-shop since it started in 2008.

Provincial Director Jose Divinagracia said that DTI has high regard of the workforce of LGU San Jose for institutionalizing a one-stop-shop every January where business permit renewal is at its peak.

This is a laudable effort worth emulating by other local government units (LGUs) in compliance to the Business Permit Licensing System Reform Standardization, he said.

“Our department and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) are working towards the competitiveness of LGUs in attracting more investments and one of the approach is the simplification and standardization of permit and licensing system,” explained Divinagracia.

On the other hand, Molina mentioned that peace and order also contributed a lot in maintaining conducive business atmosphere.

With this, the Mayor also commended the significant contribution of peacekeeping officers and the barangay officials for the maintenance of peace and order in there area of jurisdiction.

Business permit registration and renewal is expected to reach 2,000 way ahead of 2010 registered permit which is 1,517 with total business tax earned amounting to 14,181,818. (JCM/PSM/PIA6 Antique)
