ABOUT 300 representatives from the government and the private sector are expected to attend the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) roadshow on the Ease of Doing Business Law on Monday, September 10.
The activity will discuss the Implementing Rules and Regulation of Republic Act 11032, known as the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018.
Sitti Amina Jain, DTI regional director, said the participants will come from Zamboanga Peninsula and the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).
Jain said there will be two sessions, one in the morning with the private sector, and with the government sector in the afternoon.
R.A. 11032, which President Rodrigo Duterte signed into law on May 28, 2018, amended R.A. 9485 or the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007.
Jain said the law promotes ease of doing business in the country by cutting red tape in government agencies that delays the delivery of efficient services.
She said the law also promotes sound and good regulatory management practices and improves the ranking of the Philippines in terms of competitiveness.
The law also aims to strengthen the capability of the Civil Service Commission (CSC) to pursue anti-red tape cases through increased penalties for violations of the Anti-Red Tape Act.
The law also creates the Anti-Red Tape Authority, which is under the Office of the President, to receive complaints, initiate investigations, and assist in filing of cases related to anti-red tape.
It shall also recommend policies, processes, and systems to improve regulatory management of all local government units and national government agencies.
