THE Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) will organize chapters in the City of Bogo and Toledo City this year to help professionalize local business organizations.

It will be like a "Big Brother concept" as CCCI itself will reach out to these organizations. Ma. Teresa Chan, CCCI president, said that this will help the local business chapters become like CCCI so they could become drivers of growth in their own locality. They will also become local extension of the chamber. 

Currently CCCI has a local chapter in Bantayan Islands which is created after super typhoon Yolanda hit the area. 

CCCI planned to have a presence in the northern and southern part of Cebu Province so that local business organizations can benefit and participate in the private-public partnership (PPP) which can help achieve economic goals in the locality. 

Sunstar reported that CCCI will be assisted by the NGO “WECan” in institutionalizing the formation of cluster business chambers in the countryside.


Bogo and Toledo cities have huge potential to become economic drivers of Cebu province, she said.

Bogo, which is located 101 kilometers north of Cebu City, has the potential to become a local transshipment hub to other provinces.

Early last year, the Cebu Provincial Government and the Bogo City Government announced it will jointly develop the Polambato Wharf in northern Cebu where 40 hectares of flatlands have been declared a part of a special economic zone.

According to a Philippine News Agency report, Bogo City Mayor Celestino Martinez Jr. said locators have expressed interest to locate at the proposed industrial site and are looking for a port for the shipment of cargoes.

The area is said to be ideal for light to medium industries and sets an advantage because of its immediate access to the port of Polambato and the major road networks of the province.
