The City Government of Navotas has helped reenergize the Navotas Chamber of Commerce and Industry to strengthen the business sector in the city and encourage their participation in local governance.
“The Chamber will serve as the voice of our business sector. It will also boost the capabilities and competitiveness of our business, thereby helping them develop further and become sustainable,” Mayor John Rey Tiangco said.
The chief executive also noted that the Chamber will play a crucial role in strengthening the partnership between the local government and the local businesses.
“The Chamber could represent the business sector and coordinate with us in establishing projects and programs that will benefit both the industry and the city,” he said.
The Chamber is also seen to provide opportunities to business owners to diversify their networks and manage to serve a larger market later.
The 15 new officers, trustees and directors of the Chamber took their oath of office before Tiangco.
Jesusa “‹P. “‹Lukban of 3D&S Rice Dealer was elected president, and Nerissa T. Domingo of Pia’s Lechon Manok and Boodle Fight was chosen as vice president.
Other officers included Cesar T. Roque Jr. of Roque Water Refilling Station as corporate secretary, Ruth M. Celorio of NFC Marine Trading as treasurer, and Rosario C. Alcorroque of Ian’s Foodhaus (Samareños) as auditor.
“We are of one dream—to see Navotas flourish. We will help one another to realize this shared vision,” Tiangco said.
