Legazpi City (14 September) -- The Board of Investments, in coordination with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Bicol, has set an Orientation Seminar on the 2010 Investments Priorities Plan (IPP) on September 27, 2010 to be held in Naga City, Camarines Sur.
DTI Bicol Regional Director Jocelyn Blanco said that the 2010 IPP will unveil the approved investment priority areas by which the government seeks to grant tax and fiscal incentives to such investments that would take advantage of the expected global and domestic economic rebound.
Dubbed as "Maximizing Opportunities of a Stronger Phil. Economy", the 2010 IPP seeks to generate more investments and more jobs in the agriculture, industry and services sector that are geared up to optimize the opportunities from the global economic recovery.
Blanco furthered that the seminar will be conducted primarily to promote and encourage investments in Region 5 in order to attract more business ventures.
She said that the one day activity will also involve the conduct of investment counseling or one-on-one consultations for prospective proponents.
BOI Governor Oliver B. Butalid will keynote the event.
Some 150 participants coming from the Chamber of Commerce/Business Associations, Local Chief Executives, Regional Directors from other line agencies and Media Personalities are expected to attend the seminar.
