Investment Promotion Center Now Open
This was disclosed by Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry – Capiz chapter president and IPC managing director Dale F. Bernas during a simple program and fellowship inside the Center.
The provincial government in concurrence of the Provincial Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (PMSMED) Council and the Capiz Joint Chambers has designated Bernas to direct the IPC services and operations.
PMSMED Council is chaired by businessman Danny So Chan.
“We really hope that we can entice more investors to come in and make Capiz investor-friendly,” said Department of Trade and Industry director Ermelinda P. Pollentes, noting that P1-million worth of fixtures and Information and Technology (IT) devices will be shared by DTI to the Center.
She also hoped that the Center may be provided with a Global Positioning System (GPS) so that any investor that will come in will be shown on the computer where he may want to invest given a GPS look of the entire province.
The Capiz provincial government offered the CGBC space available and manpower for free for the investment promotion arm of the province.
The opening ceremonies were also graced by Capiz Gov. Victor A. Tanco, provincial administrator lawyer Jose O. Villanueva and PMSMED Council officers and members, among others.
For his part, Chan stressed that the establishment of IPC as embodied in the Provincial Investment Code showed that public private partnership in the province is active and strong.
The IPC inauguration was part of the Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Week celebration that was also supported by PMSMED Council, Capiz Joint Chambers and provincial government (AAL/PIA6 Capiz)
