PROJECT I4J MEET WITH DTI TO ADDRES LGU ISSUES
October 20, 2016
Part of the goal in developing a National Advocacy Framework is to collaborate with government agencies to help improve the performance of the LGUs. One of which was discussed last August 3, when the project team met with Director Jerry Clavesillos of Department of Trade and Industry-Bureau of Small and Medium Enterprise Development.
Issues affecting business at the LGU level were discussed especially cases outside NCR. Also, i4J Investment Policy Paper was presented to give an overview of business concerns that impact on the Investment Climate.
As a response, Director Clavesillas mentioned that a presidential body is being formed in order to harmonize the work of all the agencies when it comes to business rules and regulations. Also, the department is checking some of their programs to address issues.
