CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Sept. 27 (PIA)–The Regional Development Council in Region X (RDC 10) enjoins all government agencies, government-owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs), and local government units (LGUs) in Northern Mindanao are enjoined to support and adhere to the implementation of the Republic Act (RA) 11032.
The call was echoed by the RDC during its 116th Full Council Meeting when its Economic Development Committee recommended the Council’s endorsement of the inputs generated during a consultative meeting on the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of RA 11032.
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Region X and the DTI Industry Competitiveness Bureau conducted a consultation earlier this month to generate comments on the IRR. It was participated by national line agencies, LGUs, GOCCs, and the private sector.
Among the inputs generated was for government agencies to pilot test their online facilities, as well as provide kiosk for the general public to try and access the services; integration of the implementation of the Barangay Micro Business Enterprise Law; and government entities to continually update its processes to improve public service.
RA 11032, otherwise known as the “Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Delivery of Government Services Act of 2018,” was signed into law by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on May 28, 2018.
It is an amendment of Republic Act 9485, or the “Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007,” which makes the process of starting and operating a business easier, and more efficient.
The new law seeks to correct the perennial problem of bureaucracy in government institutions, and reduce opportunities for graft and corruption.
It also enhances business competitiveness and helps attract more foreign investments by simplifying requirements and streamlining procedures. (APB/PIA10)
