LUBUAGAN, Kalinga, March 14 (PIA) -- The Trade and Industry provincial office has opened a Negosyo Center at the municipal hall here during the town’s 8th Laga Festival held recently.

 

DTI-Cordillera Regional Director Myrna P. Pablo, who led the opening of the province’s 7th Negosyo Center, said the facility is established to encourage enterprising individuals open their micro-business and at the same time, assist existing small entrepreneurs in the locality.

As contained in the Negosyo Act, the government should promote growth of small business that would usher sources of income and employment in the grassroots level to help push economic growth, Pablo explained.

Interested business applicants can directly seek advice at the center on matters of business application requirements, credit sources and other related needs in business operation, she said.

Lubuagan Mayor Johnny Dickpus assured the municipal government’s full support to the program

Meanwhile, Vice Governor James Edduba cited the on-going road improvement project of the provincial government as prime tool in connecting upland towns of the province to the center.

Through good roads, trade and other economic projects will develop in the place, which is the top agenda of the provincial government, he said.
