MBTF promotes Dagupan to Asia CEO Forum


THIS city joined the province of Pangasinan in promoting the province to foreign and local investors in the Asia CEO Forum held at Dusit Thai Hotel in Makati City on July 5.

As one of the panelists at the forum, Mayor Belen T. Fernandez presented Dagupan to some 150 local and foreign investors who included resort property owners, food processing companies, renewable energy companies, and business process outsourcing industries among others.

Fernandez made a sales pitch for the city’s pool of talents, strong infrastructure and the presence of investors’ support services.

“In our city, we hate corruption that is why we have zero corruption and our city is red tape free,” said Fernandez.

She cited city’s new Comprehensive Land Use Plan which effectively opened new gates of development in three areas: Lucao-Pantal, Poblacion, Caranglaan-Tebeng and Bonuan area as the other new growth centers.

To prepare the city for the subsequent influx of investors in the city like SM and Almeria, Fernandez said an Investment and Development Board was created to help ensure immediate approval of applications.

She also cited the city’s one-stop customer-friendly center that ensures easy processing of business permits.

As a coastal city crisscrossed by seven river tributaries, she said Dagupan is developing its tourism potential through the redevelopment of the Tondaligan Park in Bonuan, stretching up to the shoreline of Barangay Pugaro, an island barangay.

On Dagupan’s standing in the region, the latest Philippine Competitiveness Index cited the city as the most improved city in the region.

Dagupan, she said, is also being touted today as the next wave city in the country for being in the top ten among the best locations for Information Technology and Business Process Management Industry next to Manila, Cebu, Clark and Bacolod City.

With an average monthly crime rate of 21.4 percent and crime solution efficiency of 86.22 percent, the city remains to be the safest city to live in and invest.

With the city’s consistent exponential surplus, Mayor Belen intends to make Dagupan as the first one-billion-peso economy among towns and cities in Pangasinan by 2019. (CIO/JCB)
