City Receives Special Citation from PCCI
Another award adds up to Olongapo City’s collection of honors and recognitions.
The Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) at its 35th Philippine Business Conference (PBC), awarded the City of Olongapo a Special Citation for Investment Promotions in the 2009 Most Business-Friendly LGU Awards.
Given last October 20 at the Awards Night for Outstanding LGUs and Local Business Chambers held at the Manila Hotel, said citation recognizes the city’s best practices and programs in promoting trade and investments and sound business licensing procedures.
“There are two main criteria for judging; good governance and competitiveness. In good governance, the LGU has to demonstrate commendable efforts in encouraging trade and investments, accountability, transparency and efficiency in the implementation of business-related regulations and procedures and the LGU has to demonstrate competitiveness thru the policies, programs and activities to attract investors,” said Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO) Head Neal Perez, who received the award in behalf of City Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr.
“Business organizations consider Olongapo City as a conducive place to do business due to its best practices and programs to promote business and investments. This special citation in addition to the 2007 award the city has received as Most Competitive City proves that the city government is in the right track in advancing the concerns of our business economy,” said Mayor Gordon.
