Mushroom production eyed in Mambajao

MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, April 28 (PIA) — Local agriculturists and farmers alike, recently undergone a 3-day mushroom culture production training to provide appropriate technology and be able to counter the demand in the local market soon.

The activity was initiated by the local government unit of Mambajao in hope to provide additional agri-livelihood that will augment the income of the farmers.

Agriculturist Peter Eñola said mushroom is ideal because it can be grown commercially or in small-scale using cheap materials and agricultural waste.

“Mushroom is one of the most delicate plant to grow, and securing spawns here in the island is a challenge that we are also facing, that is why part of the training was also teaching participants how to propagate the mushrooms,” Eñola added.

Mushroom culture in the province is still on its early phase, some farmers have successfully produced, but still small scale, and this technology transfer is hoped to perk up the industry. (JCV/PIA -10)

DTI-Camiguin, chamber spearhead business consultative confab

MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, January 29 (PIA) — The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Camiguin Provincial Office, in partnership with the Camiguin Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Inc. (CCCI).,  has spearheaded a Consultative Meeting with the Poblacion Barangay Council of Mambajao and the local business sectors  on 20 January 2016, at the height of the Business One Stop Shop (BOSS) registrations.

The Consultative Meeting was aimed at being the right forum for data gathering and clarification from the Poblacion Barangay Council Officers regarding the implementation of an ordinance, specifically Barangay Ordinance No. 2014-01 increasing the Barangay Business Clearance Permit, approved from the barangay level on July 21, 2014 and further approved by the Sangguniang Bayan of Mambajao on January 19, 2015.

The business community requested for a possible refinement and amendment of the ordinance.  Majority of its members,  led by the CCCI President Nelpher Catacutan said they had a vague understanding in  the implementation of the ordinance as the fees were allegedly deemed excessive,  hastily implemented, not well disseminated  and are yet to be standardized.

Punong barangay Rodin Modina Romualdo represented the Poblacion Barangay Council and properly explained how the ordinance has been formulated in the purpose on increasing local revenues and taxes and in an appropriate manner been expressing his openness for an open dialogue regarding this issue.

The two parties made agreements where Punong Barangay Romualdo assured the members of the CCCI and the whole business community that by first week February 2016, the Barangay Council of Poblacion Mambajao will convene inviting representatives CCCI, Mambajao Business Community, DTI, and other interested parties to discuss the possibility of amending the imposed Barangay Business Clearance Fees, improved the crafting of the Barangay Ordinance, and make recommendations to the council to improve and enhance the relationship between the business community and the Barangay Council.

Next steps include a tax mapping activity to be organized by the Barangay Council after the close of the renewal time of securing business licensing permits to validate the capitalization indicated by the businessmen at their application forms.

The CCCI is a business advocate of private sector concerns, economic counselor, trade facilitator, government relations officer, liaison to the public sector, investment promoter and, most importantly, a partner in local economic development, among others.

The DTI acts as a secretariat and advocacy partner of the CCCI, whose principal function was to promote and enhance the growth of the existing and thriving industries in the country and a partner in local development.

Under the Local Government Code of the Philippines, the LGUs have common revenue raising powers like the barangay clearance,  which is one of the requirements for any municipality to issue permits and licenses for business activities and for such clearance, the sangguniang barangay may impose a reasonable fee.
