The Role of City Government in Improving Ease of Doing Business

Local government units play a significant role in making sure its regulatory environment is favourable to the startup and operation of businesses in its area. In this aspect, the City of San Fernando remains to be at the forefront of initiatives aimed at improving its ease of doing business.

The City of San Fernando took the spotlight during the DTI-LGU Business Forum held last October 17 at Makati Shangri-La Hotel for its initiatives toward improved ease of doing business. In a speech delivered by LGU-CSFP Business Licensing and Permits Division Chief Joseph Garcia, the role of local and city governments in pushing for a more conducive business environment for investors was highlighted. In addition, Mr. Garcia shared the city government’s efforts that consistently earned them accolades in this aspect and how San Fernando intends to remain competitive in the future.
