Puerto price coun­cil to con­vene

Palawan News - - FRONT PAGE - By Ger­ardo Reyes Jr. Re­porter

The LPCC will be led by the city gov­ern­ment and the Depart­ment of Trade and In­dus­try (DTI) in go­ing around the pub­lic mar­ket and other stores to check on the com­pli­ance of busi­ness es­tab­lish­ments.

The city gov­ern­ment will con­vene the Lo­cal Price Co­or­di­nat­ing Coun­cil (LPCC) chaired by Mayor Lu­cilo Bayron on Oc­to­ber 25 to dis­cuss the prices of ba­sic com­modi­ties. Wel­son Paz, the trade and in­dus­try de­vel­op­ment spe­cial­ist, said the LPCC will be led by the city gov­ern­ment and the Depart­ment of Trade and In­dus­try (DTI) in go­ing around the pub­lic mar­ket and other stores to check on the com­pli­ance of busi­ness es­tab­lish­ments. Among the agenda of the meet­ing is the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Price Act of 1992 and pos­si­ble rec­om­men­da­tions to ad­dress pol­icy prob­lems and the sup­ply of com­modi­ties. “May in­spec­tion sa pub­lic mar­ket at pati rin mga tal­i­papa out­side ng pub­lic mar­ket ay kasama sa iiku­tan. Tit­ig­nan kung si­nusunod ba nila ang price tag at kung walang price tag ay mag-een­force. Iba’t-ibang team na ito, merong DTI, DA, li­cens­ing ng city, city ve­teri­nary at iba pa,” he pointed out. Other mem­bers of the coun­cil are the Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture (DA), City Vet- eri­nary Of­fice (CVO), Busi­ness Per­mits and Li­cens­ing Of­fice (BPLO), and other con­cerned na­tional and lo­cal of­fices. Mean­while, on Oc­to­ber 26 about 200 con­sumers and busi­ness­men are ex­pected to at­tend the Con­sumers’ Congress. The Congress in­cludes lec­tures and dis­cus­sion on Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Ad­vo­cacy, En­trepreneurial Mind­set­ting, Sup­ply Man­age­ment, and Sup­ply Value Chain. Per­ci­val Nar­borita, in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer of the DTI- Palawan, said that the value chain topic will help the pro­duc­ers, sup­pli­ers, and busi­ness­men un­der­stand the course. “Ito ay more on busi­ness de­vel­op­ment. Matu­tu­ruan sa flow ng value chain ang mga negosyante para hindi basta-basta mag-aan­gat ng presyo kasi naapek­tuhan ang mga con­sumers,” he said. The Con­sumers’ Congress will be led by the DTI’s Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion Ad­vo­cacy Bu­reau (CPAB). Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Bangko Sen­tral ng Pilip­inas (BSP), Bu­reau of In­ter­nal Rev­enue (BIR) and the CVO will also talk dur­ing the event. “Itong sa city ve­teri­nary ay tungkol ito mostly sa mga binibenta na karne para masig­uro ang food safety,” he said.
