‘Bagong Maynila’ administration earns trust, confidence of business owners
CALOOCAN CITY, July 5 (PIA) –Manila City Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso on Thursday, July 2, bared that more businesses have started operating in the nation’s capital during the first year of his administration.
In a news release posted at the Manila PIO Facebook page, Domagoso attributed this to the greater trust and confidence of business owners to the Manila City government.
The mayor also said the local government’s “Bagong Maynila Business One Stop Shop” have efficiently provided business owners with ease of doing business and acquiring necessary permits.
Data from the Manila Bureau of Permits showed that 8,665 new businesses have registered while 51,022 businesses renewed their permits.
“Sa kabila ng pandemya, dumami pa rin ang bilang ng businesss permits sa ating Lungsod,” Domagoso said.
“We must help our people. We should find an ‘out of the box’ idea on how to provide opportunities to the people,” he said.
Bureau of Permits Director Levi Facundo said the Domagoso administration was able to earn the trust and confidence of business owners in the nation’s capital.
“From the beginning since July 1 2019, we discovered a lot of businesses without permits and when they saw the accomplishments of the Honorable Mayor, they started to build their confidence back to the government,” Facundo said.
“Maraming pangako si Mayor na kung makikita mo mula pa noong kampanya hanggang ngayon, tinutupad niya,” he added.
Likewise, Facundo said the pandemic wouldn’t stop the administration from using every opportunity to fulfill its responsibility to the people.
“It will not stop the Mayor, nakikita naman natin siya magtrabaho,” Facundo said.
“It is a continuous growth if you can see in the numbers that we have inspite the fact that we were not operational for almost three months because of the pandemic,” he said.
Facundo also appealed to the public to continue cooperating with the city government in complying with business requirements.
“Dapat tanggapin na natin na we’re no longer that dugyot. We have to pass that, hindi na tayo pwede ganon,” Facundo said.
“Maraming plano si Mayor, pero hindi niya magagawa ito kung hindi natin siya tutulungan,” he added. (Manila PIO/PIA-NCR)
