Luncheon Meeting

The Marcos Jr. administration has continued to underscore its commitment to improve ease of doing business to promote a strong investment climate in the Philippines. In line with this, among the government's recent efforts is the signing of Executive Order No. 18, which aims to fast-track the process of securing necessary licences and permits for strategic investments. Moreover, key government agencies and decision-makers have boosted its efforts to further strengthen collaboration with the private sector, among which is the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA).

ARTA, as the frontrunner in regulatory transformation and improvement, is mandated to recommend policies, processes, and systems that enhance the efficiency of business permitting and licensing agencies. Over five years into the creation of this agency through Republic Act (R.A.) No. 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business Act, the ARTA has been instrumental in advancing and implementing initiatives anchored on transparency, efficiency, productivity, and effectiveness of government services.

With this, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) is organising a Luncheon Meeting on Ease of Doing Business on 06 February 2024, with Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin and ARTA Director General Ernesto Perez. This Luncheon Meeting will discuss the Philippine government's thrusts and efforts on advancing ease of doing business, as well as the latest policies and programs instituted by ARTA, and its priorities and initiatives in line with its mandate. Moreover, this event will also provide a platform for industry leaders to share their experiences, fostering a collaborative atmosphere crucial for implementing ARTA's objectives effectively, paving the way for increased trade and investments in the Philippines.
