THE 900TH Negosyo Center in the country has been opened, located in Carmen, Agusan del Norte. Under Republic Act 10644, the Go Negosyo Act of 2014, the Negosyo Centers are intended to help entrepreneurs by providing access to markets and financing, training programs, and a simplified business registration process. The law mandates the creation of such facilities in all municipalities, cities, and provinces to support micro, small, and medium enterprises. “The Negosyo Center is a great help for Filipinos wanting to start businesses,” Senator Paolo Benigno A. Aquino IV, one of the authors of the law, said in a statement. — Camille A. Aguinaldo
