DTI offers free office

January 7 - 13, 2017

MAASIN CITY – Southern Leyte’s growing economy, if tapped by local entrepreneurs, might herald a possible future golden age in entrepreneurship, and encourage more people to have a better outlook when it comes to starting their own enterprise in the province.

Questions like, “Where should I start?” or even the very knowledge of how to fulfil government regulations in business applications and registrations is now a step closer as the Department of Trade and Industry’s Negosyo Center Office is set to reach out more entrepreneurs in the province.

DTI Branch Head Michael Nuñez, invites the businessmen to freely use DTI’s Negosyo Center office for their business conferences and meetings with their clients.

“Negosyo center serves as a store house of information related to business, any businessmen, even students can avail of and use the office,” he said.

The center has a conference table, television for presentation, reference magazines related to business and laptops.

Nuñez said that the objective of the Negosyo Center is to assist the micro and small enterprises to grow and create job opportunities.

Among the important functions of the Negosyo Centers are to: facilitate business regulations and requirements, provide easiness in making or starting up business, provide partial business consultancy and anything regarding how to run the business.

As of now, there are four established Negosyo Centers located in the towns of Sogod, Liloan, Hinunangan and Maasin City.

“Additional ten (10) more centers are expected to be created in different towns of Southern Leyte for the coming years in line with DTI’s aim to have centers in each respective town in the province,” Nuñez added.
In Maasin City’s Negosyo Center, there are two business consultants deployed to cater to the needs and advisory services to businessmen and wannabe entrepreneurs.

Nunez urged everyone to utilize the centers to encourage more businessmen in the localities.(By MARK L. RIMAS)
