In their bid to sustain Investment Promotion initiatives in Region 2, the Department of Trade and Industry Region 02 and the Department of the Interior and Local Government Region 02 conducted “On-Site Technical Assistance on the Preparation/ Updating of Project Profiles and Investment Promotion Collaterals” in select Local Government Units (LGUs) in November 2018.

The activity sought to prepare LGUs for the “Investment Forum” on December 10, 2018 at Pulsar Hotel, Buntun, Tuguegarao City, Cagayan. During the activity, the team of DTI R02 and DILG R02 met with the Local Economic and Investments Promotion Office to discuss and finalize proposed projects which the LGUs want to communicate to prospective investors. The Investment Promotion Collaterals of the LGUs were also reviewed.

In a message, Mr. Charles Irvin P. Tagarino, Trade and Industry Development Specialist of DTI R02, said that “... by capacitating the local investment promotion officers with the essential investment promotion strategies, LGUs are assured that they get to communicate the most relevant messages to investors”.

Among the LGUs provided with Technical Assistance are Tuguegarao City and Baggao in the Province of Cagayan; City of Ilagan, Cauayan City, and Santiago City in the Province of Isabela; Bambang in the Province of Nueva Vizcaya; and the Provincial Governments of Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, and Quirino.
