The General Assembly is an annual gathering of local chief executives from the member municipalities of the League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP). It was also an opportunity for business and non-profit sector groups to engage the municipal mayors and individuals from government and private agencies.
Project I4J, now on its second year of implementation elicited great interest from local officials who are willing to join the project. Project i4J is a three-year integrity and job creation project co-funded by the European Union. It aims to increase small business registration and investment and reduce the time and cost of public service delivery through the development of integrity mechanisms and models of transparent and efficient business and investment promotion procedures at the local government.
For the pilot phase, Project I4J is currently partnering with the municipalities of Naujan (in Oriental Mindoro), Tuburan(in Cebu) and the Iranun cluster of municipalities composed of Barira, Buldon, Matanog and Parang (in Maguindanao). These pilot municipalities are working closely with the Project Team in drafting the integrity mechanisms and models for business and investment promotions that are applicable to their respective contexts. The cities of Puerto Princesa, San Carlos and Cagayan de Oro and the provinces of Oriental Mindoro, Cebu and South Cotabato are also involved in the pilot development.
Eighty (80) municipal, city and provincial local government units will replicate the integrity mechanisms and business and investment promotion models developed and implemented at the nine pilot areas during the Dissemination Phase that is set to begin at the latter half of this year.
