The 100% adherence from the LGUs is being pushed. Based on records provided by the DILG’s Bureau of Local Government Development, only 59.37% or 900 LGUs are compliant to the revised standards in processing business permits and licenses, one of the salient parts of RA 11032.

The forum will also feature speakers from Singapore and the US to share best practices on Smart City Solutions and how the government can enable small business development.
