MUNTINLUPA CITY, Nov. 3 (PIA) — The Muntinlupa City Government in partnership with the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) recently launched a Negosyo Center to promote ease of doing business and facilitate access to services for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the City.
Mayor Jaime Fresnedi and DTI Usec. Zenaida Maglaya led the opening of the Negosyo Center together with Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) execs and other local officials.
Fresnedi said the Negosyo Center will be assisting local MSMEs through the following services: business registration assistance, business advisory services, business information and advocacy, and monitoring and evaluation.
“MSMEs can coordinate with Negosyo Center for registration and renewal application including application for Barangay Micro-Business Enterprise (BMBE), provision of grants and other forms of financial assistance, shared service facilities and equipment, and other support through national government agencies, assistance with information and services in training, financing, marketing and other areas as may be required by MSMEs, and recommendation for business-process improvement,” Fresnedi explained.
Negosyo Center is located at Plaza Central, Poblacion and open to clients from Mondays-Friday, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
Mayor Jaime Fresnedi vowed to continue his support to all local entrepreneurs and would-be entrepreneurs for inclusive development.
The local exec invited all “Muntipreneurs” and other business locators to touch base with the local Negosyo Center for assistance.
The City Government has pioneered numerous advancements in developing MSMEs by taking a proactive role in prioritizing the sector through policies, programs and collaborative projects.
