Bulacan Governor Wilhelmino Sy-Alavarado gave a message as Vice-Chairman of the CLGFI. DILG Regional Director Florida M. Dijan presented and explained the categories and the awards process. At least thirty-two awards were given in four (4) major categories while three (3) LGUs were recognized as ranking among the Top Ten in competitiveness in the country. The event also included the Oath Taking of the Central Luzon Association of BPLOs (CLAB).
Director Angeles said that the regular recognition of local government units through these awards is a boost not only to the LGUs but also to the economy of the region through ease of doing business. Through the streamlining program jointly supported by DTI, DILG and other government agencies concerned with the registration of business entities, investment environment of Central Luzon is made more favorable.
