GUAGUA Mayor Dante Torres, along with officers of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), led the opening of the Negosyo Center here in a bid to further provide support for small businesses of the town.
The facility aims to boost micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the town’s already vibrant business sector.
The Negosyo Center is positioned to further enable the agency to bring its services closer to the public, especially to MSMEs as well as facilitate the creation of more entrepreneurs under various sectors in the locality.
The establishment of Negosyo Centers is provided under the Republic Act 10644, or the Go Negosyo Act.
It provides MSMEs the ease of doing business, and facilitates access to grants and other forms of financial assistance, and shared service facilities (SSF), among others.
The law aims to ensure management guidance, assistance, and improvement of the working conditions of enterprises, and facilitate market access and linkage services for entrepreneurs.
Aside from these services, the Negosyo Center can also accept and facilitate business name registration applications.
