Mina, Tubungan named ‘most business-friendly LGU’
The Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry named the towns of Mina and Tubungan in Iloilo province this year’s “Most Business-Friendly Local Government Unit” in the country under the 3rd to 6th class municipality category.
Both towns received a plaque of special citation during the 44th Philippine Business Conference and Expo at the Manila Hotel.
“We are so happy for the award and we hope to do more so we could be a grand slam winner next year,” Mina town assessor Dory Emelo said.
Emelo said they opened a one-stop shop service made to cater to the needs of business owners.
The shop is manned by personnel of various government agencies, from the Business Permit and Licensing Office, municipal health office, Bureau of Fire Protection, and Philippine National Police.
“They no longer need to go these offices wherever they are located because the one-stop-shop is already a total package of what they need,” the official said.
