To help lower the price of goods and services, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. has prohibited local government units (LGU) from collecting pass-through fees for delivery vehicles on national roads, and those unfunded by Republic Act (RA) No. 7160 or the Local Government Code (LGC).
THE Management Association of the Philippines (MAP) has inked an agreement with the Anti-Red Tape Authority (Arta), the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) to “jointly implement” the provision of “necessary” technical assistance to select local government units (LGUs) in compliance with the law on ease of doing business.
The DILG, ARTA, DICT and MAP signed last Friday the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to jointly boost the ease of doing business in select LGUs in compliance with Republic Act No. 11032 or the “Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018.”
