Iloilo City vies for Most Business Friendly Award 2013

Iloilo City is a finalist in the highly-urbanized city category of Most Business Friendly Award 2013 given by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) during the 39th Philippine Business Conference in Manila on October 24.

Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog said the citation is a clear proof of the City Government’s efforts to improve service delivery and create conducive business climate to attract investors.

The Local Government Units (LGUs) were assessed based on following key areas: trade, investments, and tourism promotion; Public-Private Sector Partnership; Micro Small Medium Enterprises development; quality management systems and innovations; and inter-local government relations.

The award is an initiative of PCCI to recognize and promote models of effective governance and highlights the LGUs ability to institute good governance reforms to promote trade and investment in their localities and ensure accountability, transparency and efficiency in the conduct of their day-to-day operations.

PCCI spearheads the annual search for the most business-friendly LGU awards to commend LGUs that have become successful in creating or enhancing an environment conducive to business.

It aims to complement the efforts of the government to institutionalize standards in delivering quality services to the people as mandated by the Anti-Red Tape Act.

Its slogan “What’s good for the citizenry is good for business” represents a framework for achieving continuous improvement of LGU services to their areas benefiting both business and citizenry.
PCCI is the voice of the country’s business sector working with stakeholders to advocate growth and sustainable development.
