PINUKPUK, Kalinga - The De­part­ment of Trade and In­dus­try opened the fifth Negosyo Cen­ter in the prov­ince.

DTI-Cordillera di­rec­tor Myrna Pablo, who led the open­ing, said the cen­ter is es­tab­lished for small en­trepreneurs in­ter­ested to open their en­ter­prise in the lo­cal­ity.

As con­tained in the Negosyo Act, gov­ern­ment pro­motes small busi­ness that would usher sources of in­come and em­ploy­ment in the grass­root to help push eco­nomic growth.

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.

Mayor Irv­ing Dasayon pledged full sup­port to the project which he said would help ad­vance lo­cal econ­omy.

Mean­while, act­ing Gov­er­nor James Ed­duba sees the cen­ter as cat­a­lyst of eco­nomic change with busi­ness cre­at­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for em­ploy­ment, in­come and rev­enue for the gov­ern­ment.

To­gether with the line agen­cies, the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment is bent to lead­ing the prov­ince on the track to progress, which is the top agenda of the present ad­min­is­tra­tion, he said.

The other Negosyo Cen­ters are es­tab­lished at the DTI pro­vin­cial of­fice, Tabuk City Hall, Rizal town and in Bal­balan. PIA Kalinga
