Cabuyao City opens biggest Negosyo Center in Laguna

CABUYAO, Laguna — This metropolis known as the "Enterprise City" in Laguna has now opened its Negosyo Center (NC), the 59th business hub put up by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in the Calabarzon region comprising the provinces Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon.
Mia Angeline Cortez, public information officer of DTI Calabarzon, told the Philippine News Agency on Wednesday here that the Negosyo Center is now housed at the 3rd Floor of the Cabuyao Retail Plaza following the trade department's partnership agreement with the city government over the weekend.
This city's Negosyo Center is the 12th one-stop-shop business center established in Laguna after Pagsanjan, Biñan City, Los Baños, Santa Rosa City, Calamba City, Victoria, San Pedro City, San Pablo City, Santa Maria, Alaminos and Santa Cruz.
Mayor Rommel Gecolea said he immediately agreed when DTI discussed the establishment of the Negosyo Center and "did my best to set up a complete and spacious NC office for our town."
"We are willing to accept all the programs of DTI because we believe that these programs will greatly benefit our people, especially our entrepreneurs," Gecolea said.
DTI Calabarzon Regional Director Marilou Toledo said they are very happy with the full support and cooperation of Cabuyao "to our programs as our way to develop MSMEs and generate employment."
For her part, DTI-Laguna Director Susan Palo said Cabuyao has the biggest Negosyo Center office in Laguna so far, "having complete facilities such as training room and reception area."
Cabuyao and DTI officials are now engaging the current and aspiring entrepreneurs to visit the Center and know more about the available services and training programs.
The establishment of Negosyo Center is prescribed under the "Go Negosyo Law," or Republic Act 10644, which mandates the creation of these centers in all provinces, cities, and municipalities.
The Negosyo Center serves as a one-stop-shop offering services for micro, small and medium entrepreneurs including the facilitation requirements and ease of doing business and in accessing information essential for MSMEs growth.
Some Negosyo Center services include accepting and facilitating all new registration and renewal application of MSMEs including application for Barangay Micro-Business Enterprise (BMBE); assisting MSMEs in meeting regulatory requirements to start and maintain the business;
Providing information and services in training, financing, marketing, and other areas as may be required by MSMEs; and facilitating access to grants and other forms of financial assistance.
Cabuyao City councilors, city hall staff, cooperatives, fishermen, farmers, and partner agencies like the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), Departments of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Agriculture (DA), Interior and Local Government (DILG), Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) and regional line agencies attended the center's inaugural rite.
