Negosyo Center-Davao region coordinator and Division Chief Rachel S. Remitiowas also present together with the whole staff of DTI XI-SMEDSD. The launching of Negosyo Center-New Bataan is also the opening salvo for the series of activities for the nationwide 1000Negosyo Centers celebration.
Apart from the distinction of the being the 999thNegosyo Center in the country, Negosyo Center-New Bataan also marks the unprecedented rise of the town devastated by Typhoon Pablo about 7 years ago. Mayor Balbin said that the town’s battle cry of “Bangon New Bataan” has become a reality, thanks to support of partner agencies such as the DTI. He also said that the rise of New Bataan came from the determination and resiliency of its people.
Provincial Director Balleque expressed his congratulations and appreciation to the support from LGU New Bataan for the establishment of the town’s LGU-based Negosyo Center. He said that thru Negosyo Center-New Bataan the MSME sector will now have better access to the services of the DTI and more convenience to avail the services of the LGU.
DTI XI Division Chief and Regional Negosyo Center Coordinator Rachel S. Remitio, who represented DTI XI Regional Maria Belenda Q. Ambi, also said that LGU New Bataan support to the DTI projects such as the Negosyo Center and SSF, manifests its deep concern to the MSME Sector. She added that these support to the MSME would eventually bring in inclusive growth and would benefit New Bataan.
The Negosyo Center in New Bataan is actually the 9th LGU-based Negosyo Center in Compostela Valley. Just like the NCs in the province which adopted the Integrated Community Negosyo Center (InCoNeC) framework, the Negosyo Center in New Bataan is also expected to adopt the concept in its operation. The InCoNeC concept proved to be a best practice in Negosyo Center operation as it integrated DTI services to small businesses with that of the LGU. This has become timely in the implementation of the RA 11032 or Ease of Doing Business Act, which primarily focus on streamlining the process of business registration process.
