Finally, the seminar aims to assist the LRED LGUs in complying with DILG Memorandumm Circular 2010-113 on the designation of Local Economic and Investment Promotion Officer, and discuss progress of implementation as well as results, indicators for measuring them and some methodologies for collecting and documenting them.

Target participants for the activity are the members of the TWG, including the municipal planning and development officer (MPDO), provincial planning and development officer (PPDO), local economic investment promotion officer, municipal local government operation officer (MLGOO) and the provincial tourism officer.
