DILG calls on LGUs to be centers of growth and business dev’t
by DILG release

The Department of the Interior and Local Government urged local government units to become centers of growth by attracting more businesses to invest in their localities.

DILG Officer-in-Charge Catalino S. Cuy said by increasing LGU competitiveness and ease of doing business, they will be able to attract more investors to pour their resources into their localities.

“With more investments, there will be more income for the LGUs and more jobs will be created for the constituents,” Cuy said.

He also called on highly urbanized cities and LGUs that have already earned high income out of the business registrations to also use their funds for service delivery and development projects.

“Instead of just keeping these as surplus funds, we encourage them to spend them for social services projects and initiatives that will improve the lives of their constituents,” Cuy said.

To further improve business processes at the local level, the DILG’s Bureau of Local Government Development (BLGD) converged other national agencies involved in the business sector last month at Estancia Resort Hotel, Tagaytay City on the development of the framework for increasing competitiveness and ease of doing business.

BLGD Director Anna Liza Bonagua said the result of inter-agency workshop will set the direction of DILG programs on business friendliness and competitiveness for the next five years.

“By 2022, the DILG envisions to develop competitive LGUs that have improved their financial capabilities and do not just solely rely on their meager Internal Revenue Allotment anymore but rather they are able to create jobs and provide effective and efficient delivery of basic services,” Bonagua said.

Resource person Francis Gentoral guided the participants in identifying the issues and concerns arising from the LGU competitiveness and ease of doing business; formulating and harmonizing outputs, outcome and target; and developing framework and key messages. He also guided them to identify the roles and interventions of their respective agencies so that these pursuits will complement one another.
