Watchmen Daily Journal - - COMMUNITY -

Four Negosyo Cen­ters in Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal have been rec­og­nized as among the coun­try’s top per­form­ing fa­cil­i­ties, ac­cord­ing to the Negosyo Cen­ter Mon­i­tor­ing Sys­tem (NCMS) of the Depart­ment of Trade and In­dus­try (DTI).

Engiemar Tu­pas, DTI-Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal co­or­di­na­tor for Negosyo Cen­ter, said on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 3, the in­clu­sion of the four fa­cil­i­ties in the list is a val­i­da­tion that Negosyo Cen­ters in the provinces are do­ing well in bring­ing the ser­vices of the agency closer to the stake­hold­ers.

These are the Negosyo Cen­ters lo­cated in the cities of Ba­colod, Ka­bankalan and Vic­to­rias, and town of Hini­garan, which are among the top 50 cen­ters, based on the num­ber of clients as­sisted and mi­cro, small and medium en­ter­prises (MSMEs) served from Jan­uary to July 2018.

The Negosyo Cen­ter in Ba­colod City was in ninth place with 6,729 clients as­sisted; Ka­bankalan City, 33rd with 3,034 clients; Hini­garan, 45th with 2,210 clients; and Vic­to­rias City, 47th, with 1,982 clients.

Tu­pas, a se­nior trade and in­dus­try de­vel­op­ment spe­cial­ist of DTI-Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal, said the clients served in­clude mostly MSMEs avail­ing en­tre­pre­neur­ial, prod­uct de­vel­op­ment, and busi­ness train­ings.

These ser­vices are on top of the reg­is­tra­tion ser­vices for trade­mark and for Barangay Mi­cro

Busi­ness En­ter­prise, he added.

“We con­tinue to work on hav­ing dy­namic and ef­fi­cient Negosyo Cen­ters. These fa­cil­i­ties are po­si­tioned to re­ally pro­vide MSMEs ac­cess to DTI ser­vices,” Tu­pas said.

Of the 100 Negosyo Cen­ters na­tion­wide, 22 are in Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal, in­clud­ing the six opened this year -- in Bi­nal­ba­gan, Cadiz City and Es­calante City, San Enrique, Pon­teve­dra, and Tal­isay City.

Eight Negosyo Cen­ters were opened last year, in­clud­ing those in the towns of Is­abela, Hi­nobaan, La Castel­lana, Cauayan, E.B. Ma­ga­lona and the cities of Hi­ma­may­lan, Bago, and Si­palay.

The Ne­gros First Negosyo Cen­ter at the Pro­vin­cial Capi­tol Com­plex in Ba­colod City was opened in 2015 along with those in the cities of Ka­bankalan and Sa­gay.

The es­tab­lish­ment of Negosyo Cen­ters is pro­vided un­der the Repub­lic Act 10644, or the Go Negosyo Act.
