Olongapo City Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr. received three awards Olongapo City won at the 5th Recognition of Outstanding Central Luzon Local Government Units (LGUs) held at the Holiday Inn, Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga recently.
The awards are: (1) Model LGU in the implementation of reforms under the nationwide streamlining of business permits and licensing system in the Philippine Program for the year 2010, (2) 1st Place in Highly Urbanized City category for the excellent implementation of its streamlined procedures on the issuance of mayor’s permit for the year 2010, and (3) Hall of Fame Award for its outstanding achievements as the consistent 1st place winner for three consecutive years (from 2008 to 2010) in the implementation of its documented streamlined procedures on the issuance of mayor’s permit.
“Magandang development ang pagkakatanggap ng mg award na ito, lalo tayong makakahikayat ng mga investors sa lungsod ng Olongapo dahil sa simplified at maayos na sistema,” remarked Neal Perez, head of Business Permit and Licensing Office.
“Malaking karangalan ito para sa lungsod dahil kinikilala ang mabilis na pagproseso ng mga permit bilang tulong na makapagbukas agad ng negosyo ang mga negosyante na isa ring paraan na nakakatulong na masugpo ang kahirapan,” said Mayor Gordon.
