LOOK: The Bureau of Permits reported about 6,356 new businesses from January to September 2021.

Bureau of Permits Director Levi Facundo said on Monday, October 11, that the said number is 45% higher compared to the date recorded in 2020 of the same time period.

Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso urged the city government to continue to come up with programs that will generate more jobs and businesses in the nation’s capital.

“If we do ease of doing business, business will come. If businesses will come, jobs will be made available for our people. Kapag may trabaho ang tao, panatag ang tao,” Domagoso said.
