DTI opens 8th Negosyo Center in Pangasinan 

  • April 12, 2017

BOLINAO, Pangasinan, April 12 (PIA) - The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) opened its  8th Negosyo Center in Pangasinan, this time,  in the coastal town of Bolinao in pursuit of bringing national government services closer to the people.


Regional Director Florante Leal, who  graced the opening of the center at the Municipal Hall,   reiterated the government’s priority to provide a better life to Filipinos by giving them options to venture into businesses.


“Aside from the ease in doing business, Negosyo Centers aim to encourage would-be entrepreneurs to start their business and thereby create employment opportunities,” Leal said. 


Provincial Director Peter Mangabat said the center  in Bolinao will also cater to the adjoining municipalities of the first Congressional district of Pangasinan. It would also help decongest the long queue of clients in the main office in Dagupan.

“The center will streamline the process for business registration that would help entice investors and entrepreneurs  to open  business opportunities in the area,” Mangabat said.


The Negosyo Center aims to make starting a business easier by providing the following basic services: business registration assistance; business advisory services; business information and advocacy; and monitoring and evaluation of business-process improvement. 

The seven other  Negosyo Centers in the province are located in the cities of Dagupan and Alaminos and in the municipalities of Lingayen, Rosales, Mangaldan, Bayambang, and Tayug.

The DTI and the Pangasinan Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Development  (PMSMED) Council led by its President Howard Chua Cham,  the said endeavour. (VHS/PIA-Pangasinan)
