The inception of CAMARINES SUR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY, INC. was the result of the foresight of the distinguished and multi-awarded statesman, Congressman Luis R. Villafuerte.
The goal was to establish a province-wide coalition of committed businessmen and entrepreneurs. This organization sought to serve as a private sector counterpart to the provincial government, playing a role in advancing the economy of Camarines Sur. Emphasis was placed on strengthening the business sector, fostering partnerships with other LGUs, NGOs, and entities, and stimulating economic activities and livelihood opportunities.
The inaugural meeting and election of the first set of officers occurred on July 26, 2002, at the Ceremonial Hall of the Provincial Capitol in Pili, Camarines Sur. Subsequently, on August 8 of the same year, the Constitution and By-Laws were officially adopted during the chamber’s inaugural session at the University of St. Anthony, Iriga City, following the successful resolution requesting affiliation with the PCCI.
In that same year, the CSCCI joined forces with the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) with backing from the Provincial Government of Camarines Sur and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).
Currently, its members endeavor to persistently uphold the goals of the CSCCI, continually improving as it progresses. The CSCCI will persist as the advocate for business in Camarines Sur.
THE EASE OF DOING BUSINESS LAW
Republic Act 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018 is an act that aims to streamline the current systems and procedures of government services. It is the landmark law of the Duterte administration that addresses priority number 3 of its 0+10 Point Socio-economic Agenda. This particular agenda pertains to improving the competitiveness of and ease of doing business in the Philippines. Signed into law on 28 May 2018, the law effectively amends Republic Act 9485 or the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007.
The strengthened version of the law is poised to facilitate prompt actions or resolution of all government transactions with efficiency. It applies to all government offices and agencies in the Executive Department including local government units (LGUs), government-owned or -controlled corporations, and other government instrumentalities, located in the Philippines or abroad, that provide services covering business-related and non-business transactions as defined in the IRR.
