SAN CARLOS CITY, Pangasinan – The city government has entered into an agreement with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) for the implementation of the electronic business permit and licensing system (eBPLS).

In an interview on Monday, city information officer Jhuliano Nazareno said eBPLS aims to speed up the application and renewal of business permits, as well as payment of other business-related and non business-related fees.

“The local government units (LGUs) were tasked by the national government to comply with the Ease of Doing Business Law of 2018. This means LGUs should be more efficient and effective in delivering their business procedures to have better economic growth,” he said.

Once the eBPLS becomes operational, business permit applications can be done online wherein queuing up and waiting at the business one-stop shop can be avoided.

Nazareno said the city government is expecting to attract more investors to boost economic activities here.

He said the city is among the few LGUs in Pangasinan that will soon fully implement the eBPLS.(PNA)
