First Negosyo Center In Pampanga Opens In CSF [ Thursday, 29th of October 2015 | 2 years ago ]
“Today’s launching is very timely as San Fernando was just awarded as the Most Business-Friendly LGU. No doubt this Negosyo Center is bound to be successful,” said City Mayor Edwin D. Santiago during his speech at the launching.
He added that the center will boost the development of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
On the other hand, DTI Assistant Secretary Blesila Lantayona commended the city for its support.
“From my experience in Region III, specifically in Pampanga, I laud the LGU of San Fernando and the private sector’s effort on such endeavor,” said Asec. Lantayona.
To further strengthen their working ties, a memorandum of agreement (MOA) between the LGU and DTI was inked by Mayor EdSa and DTI Pampanga Provincial Director Elenita Ordonio, with the participation of Pampanga Chamber of Commerce (PAMCHAM) president Jess Nicdao and SMED Council Chairperson Teresa David-Carlos.
A wall of pledge was also signed by the officials as a symbol of unity, solidarity and commitment.
The Negosyo Center is a one-stop-shop where doing business is made easy particularly for MSMEs within an area. To date, there are 89 such centers in the country, with six in Central Luzon and five set to be launched.
Such centers are provided for under Republic Act No. 10644 or the “Go Negosyo Act” authored by Senator BAM Aquino that seeks to strengthen (MSMEs) to create more job opportunities in the country.
Present at the event were Congressman Oca Rodriguez, City Councilors Nelson Lingat, Harvey Quiwa, Ayzel Macalino and Jacklyn Calimlim, Pampanga 2nd District Board Member Anthony Torres, Luke Buniel of the Office of Senator BAM Aquino and DTI Region III Director Judith Angeles.
