Tacurong City Launches Negosyo Center

“I’m glad that we now have a Negosyo Center because Tacurong City is considered as the business hub of Sultan Kudarat. This will ease the process of accomodating investments in our city.” – Mayor Lina O. Montilla

The Local Government of Tacurong, together with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Chamber of Commerce, held the soft launching of the Tacurong City Negosyo Center on December 29, 2015.

In attendance during the event were Hon. Lina O. Montilla, Councilor Rodrigo Jamorabon, Alberto Sero of DILG-Tacurong, P/Supt Junny Buenacosa, Martin Tee of the Chamber of Commerce, representatives of DTI-Tacurong, and various heads of premier businesses in the city.

Located at the side of the Tacurong City Sports and Cultural Center, the Negosyo Center is a public facility that was established to promote ease of doing business and facilitate access to services for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs). It will serve as a one-stop shop business center for all existing and incoming businesses in the city where processing will only take two steps. According to the DTI and the city mayor, the goal, if possible, is to eventually offer the services of the business center for free.

The construction of the state-of-the-art Negosyo Center is in progress, but according to DTI-Tacurong, the facilities and equipment have all been procured and ready to be deployed once construction is finished. The targeted time for the complete launching of the Negosyo Center is January 2016.  (Yen Robles, LGU-Tacurong)
