Navotas, ARTA sign MOU of Doing Business
The City Government of Navotas and the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) have officially sealed their partnership to promote ease of doing business.
Mayor Toby Tiangco and ARTA Director General Jeremiah Belgica led the virtual signing of the memorandum of understanding, Friday.
The MOU sought to advance the reforms and programs of the city government in compliance with Republic Act (RA) No. 11302 or ‘Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018.’
“Red tape robs valuable time and other resources from the people we vowed to serve. We should avoid and shun it at all times," Tiangco said.
"Ever since I started public service, I have always advocated for efficient and effective delivery of government services. In my early years as mayor, we installed CCTV cameras in offices, implemented no lunch break policy, and required the release of business permits within three days from application," he added.
"We want to make it easy, fast, and convenient for our constituents to transact with us. We believe that the best local government is one whose constituents do not need to go to the city hall because they could readily access our services anywhere they are," he further said.
Under the MOU, Navotas will streamline the process of issuance of permits, licenses, and other government services in all its 18 barangays; and develop the existing Business One-Stop Shop (BOSS) into an E-BOSS which will provide accessible electronic services and proficient digital applications to its citizens.
The city government will also create a Committee on Anti-Red Tape (CART), and comply with the provisions of RA 11302, provide public assistance and handle RA 11302-related complaints.
ARTA, on the other hand, will provide seminars, workshops, trainings and briefings to city government officials and employees, including those from the 18 barangays, to update and reengineer various methods necessary in delivering efficient government services.
ARTA will also coordinate and provide assistance to the city’s CART to address regulatory issues and concerns relative to the implementation of the law.
