DTI urges LGUs to adopt business permits and licensing streamlining system

By Marivic Alcober

Tacloban City (28 September) -- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Region 8 headed by Regional Director Cynthia R. Nierras recently conducted an orientation and open forum on streamlining Business Permits and Licensing Streamlining System (BPLS), which was participated in by mayors and Licensing Officers at the Leyte SMED Center, Tacloban City.

According to Lemuel Montes, DTI Information Officer Designate, as a result of said orientation, the participants signified their interest to avail the GTZ-Small and Medium Enterprise Development for Sustainable Development Program (SMEDSEP) assistance.

Among the local government units (LGU) who have already submitted their letter of intent (LOI) are: Palo, Calbiga, and Borongan. On the other hand, Montes bared that others who were present and have already been adopting either the Local and Regional Economic Development (LRED) or the BPLS are: Ormoc City; Baybay, Leyte; and Palompon.

For those who signified interest, but have not submitted their LOI yet are: Isabel, Tacloban, Dulag, Maasin, Naval, Catbalogan, Calbayog, Guiuan, Allen, and Catarman.

Further, it was learned that the general objective of the program is to orient and encourage LGUs to adopt the efforts of the administration on streamlining business registration process in order to enhance the business environment and ease of doing business. Another objective is to increase awareness on the Anti-Red Tape campaign of President Arroyo, and to update the implementation of the municipal or city Business One Stop Shop (BOSS) per province.

Likewise, the program aims to orient the LGUs on the SMEDSEP support in streamlining BPLS and local development planning, and to enlist LGUs which are interested to avail of GTZ-SMEDSEP assistance in streamlining their BPLS and in development planning adopting the LRED approach. (PIA-8) [top]
