Sun.Star Davao - - BUSINESS - BY GILFORD A. DOQUILA / Ed­i­tor

Gov­ern­ment ef­fi­ciency through eas­ing trans­ac­tion pro­cesses are seen as key fac­tors in at­tract­ing more in­vest­ments in cities and mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in Davao Re­gion, a gov­ern­ment trade of­fi­cial said.

De­part­ment of Trade and In­dus­try (DTI 11) re­gional di­rec­tor Ma. Be­lenda Q. Ambi said fast-track­ing gov­ern­ment pro­cesses will also al­low the faster es­tab­lish­ment of busi­nesses in the re­gion.

DTI con­tin­ues to cam­paign against red tape in gov­ern­ment pro­cesses.

Mean­while, Ambi also un­der­scored the recog­ni­tion of com­pet­i­tive cities and mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in Davao Re­gion as a medium in im­prov­ing ser­vices for the peo­ple.

“This Re­gional Award­ing is DTI’s way of giv­ing recog­ni­tion and pay trib­ute to all of our lo­cal gov­ern­ment units who have ex­erted time and ef­fort in gen­er­at­ing and com­pil­ing rel­e­vant data and in­for­ma­tion which can, in a way, help in­vestors in their de­ci­sion-mak­ing to lo­cate spe­cific lo­ca­tions with their busi­nesses in the re­gion,” Ambi said on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 7, 2018 dur­ing the 2nd Re­gional Com­pet­i­tive­ness Awards at The Pin­na­cle Ho­tel and Suites, Davao City.

Ambi added that over the past six years, the sum­mit has be­come an op­por­tu­nity to show­case the best of the best among lo­cal gov­ern­ment units.

“This year, we cov­ered more than 1,500 LGUs across the coun­try. For Davao Re­gion, we started in 2013 with just the key cities and cap­i­tal towns, but since 2015, all of our 49 lo­cal gov­ern­ment units were cov­ered in the sur­vey and award­ing,” Ambi said.

Mon­te­vista, Com­postela Val­ley; Malalag, Davao del Sur; and Di­gos City, Davao del Sur were awarded as Most Im­proved LGUs.

Hagonoy, Davao del Sur; Santo To­mas, Davao del Norte; and Tagum City, Davao del Norte were awarded as Most Com­pet­i­tive in Eco­nomic Dy­namism.

Don Marcelino, Davao Oc­ci­den­tal; Nabun­tu­ran, Com­posetela Val­ley; and Tagum City were awarded as Most Com­pet­i­tive in Gov­ern­ment Ef­fi­ciancy.

Mean­while, Davao City was dubbed as the Over­all Most Com­pet­i­tive Highly Ur­ban­ized City.
