In a media release recently, DTI-Cebu explained that these BACs will function as the “little DTI” operating within the locality and will implement its flagship projects and basic functions within its geographical scope.
These centers will also function as DTI-Cebu’s contact point or administrative extension in the different affected LGUs and help in delivering and facilitating the necessary and immediate support services related to rehabilitation and recovery efforts for the industry, trade, services (ITS) sectors.
DTI-7 said the BAC installed in Bogo City and Daanbantayan will also aid in building and enhancing linkages with the local government units and conducting consultancies to facilitate the needs of the business sector.
Bogo City Mayor Celestino Martinez and the Daanbantayan Municipal Mayor Augusto Corro are actively supporting the project and are positive thate these centers will bring government closer to the towns business instead of the residents travelling to Cebu City to transact with DTI.
BAC personnel assigned in Bogo City will cover the areas within Bogo City, Medellin and San Remigio while personnel assigned to cover Daanbantayan will also include Malapascua Island.
Programs and services that will be coordinated by the BAC are Bottom-Up Budgeting (BUB), Shared Services Facilities (SSF), Streamlining of Business Permits and Licensing System (BPLS), Industry Clustering/Value Chain mapping, Green Growth and Disaster Resilience, Building Local Competitiveness and Investment Promotions.
DTI will also establish BACs in the municipalities of Sta. Fe and Sogod.
First order of business for BAC personnel is an updated profile of the LGU for identifying raw materials indigenous in the locality that can be used for skills training and livelihood development.
