Quezon City welcomes New Zealand Doing Business Team

As part of the learning experience for introducing further reforms and innovations in new business registration in the Philippines, Quezon City officials welcomed the delegation from New Zealand composed of Dr. Stephen Korn, Dr. Phoebe Kwan, Mr. Rune Ylade and Ms. Mica Guevarra.

The visit was arranged by the National Competitiveness Council which wanted the Philippines to learn from New Zealand, its business registration systems that have enabled it to top the world’s ranking for Doing Business, as surveyed by the World Bank Group.

Department of Industry Assistant Secretary Art Boncato led the national government officials, who encouraged continuous cooperation between the national government and the local governments to promote regulatory and systems reforms that can make it easier to do business in the Philippines.  He updated those present about the status of an integrated law, pending in Congress, which will significantly ease the regulatory policies for doing business in the country.

Representing the organization of business permit and licensing officers in the Philippines is its president, Atty. Melanie Malaya of Parañaque, and its members who include BPLO officers of San Fernando City in Pampanga, Valenzuela City, and Calamba.

City Administrator Aldrin Cuña welcomed the delegation, saying that for years now, Quezon City has been under pressure to innovate more than most other local governments, because of its fortunate, or unfortunate, position as the benchmark for the Philippines in the Doing Business Ranking project of the World Bank.  He said that city officials have actually pushed several boundaries of policies and practices as far as business registration is concerned.  We have even adopted international quality standards for ISO 9001 for business registration and revenue collection. But he mentioned that the city government was  open to the lessons that can be learned, especially from the best there is, which is New Zealand.

Asec. Regina Samson provided an overall perspective for registering a new business in Quezon City, explain local as well as national government requirements brought on by present laws.  Quezon City BPLO chief Garry Domingo explained the present process for registering businesses, including the tracking system established under the ISO procedures which showed that the average time for registering a new business with complete documentation was 30 to 45 minutes.  He took the delegation on a tour of the Business One Stop Shop and explained its operations.

QCITDO head Paul Imjada explained the technology system used for the Business One Stop Shop, but lamented the unreliability of the full link promised by the Philippine Business Registration (PBR) system, which would have created a broad technology link of the LGU with several national government agencies involved in business registration.

Mr. Fred Abella of the Communications Coordination Center updated the delegation on the innovations already adopted by the Quezon City Government as far as mobile money and online banking payment of business taxes, as well as its established online business registration system.  He admitted, though, that there must be a more aggressive effort to transform a cultural preference for face-to-face transactions for payments in favor of digital payments.
