TARLAC CITY-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) has named Tarlac as the “Most Business Friendly” province in the entire archipelago for the second straight year.
“PCCI based the award on five criteria namely trade, investments and tourism promotions; public-private partnership; micro, small and medium enterprises development; quality management system, innovations and human resource development; and inter-local government relations,” Provincial Media Affairs Office chief Arvin Cabalu disclosed.
Tarlac defeated national finalists Isabela, Camarines Sur, Bulacan, and La Union.
In a statement, Governor Victor Yap thanked PCCI for recognizing his administration’s efforts and the province’s achievements anew during the past 12 months.
“This is an award that is dedicated for the people of Tarlac province for without their full cooperation and support to my administration’s programs and projects, this award will never be realized,” Yap said.
In relation, PCCI-Tarlac was likewise named as best chamber in the entire country.
