San Carlos City will adopt an electronic permit and licensing system
The municipal administration and the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) have reached an agreement to establish an electronic business permit and licensing system (eBPLS).
Jhuliano Nazareno, a municipal information officer, said eBPLS seeks to speed up the application and renewal of business licenses, as well as the payment of other business-related and non-business-related expenses, in an interview on Monday.
“The national government has given local government units (LGUs) the responsibility of complying with the Ease of Doing Business Law of 2018.” To achieve greater economic development, LGUs must be more efficient and successful in executing their business procedures,” he added.
Once the eBPLS is up and running, business permit applications may be submitted online, eliminating the need to queue and wait at a business one-stop-shop.
According to Nazareno, the municipal administration expects to attract additional investors in order to increase economic activity in the area.
He claims that the city would be one of the few LGUs in Pangasinan to completely adopt the eBPLS in the near future.
