MANILA Mayor Isko Moreno will launch today the Bagong Manila Business One-Stop Shop (BMBOSS).

The business one-stop  shop is aimed at making easier processing of permit applications in compliance with Republic Act 11032 or the the Ease of Doing Business Law which also covers the Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018.

The one-stop shop seeks to finish the processing in just one day instead of eight days with 11 steps involved.

The bureaus and offices in the one-stop shop include the bureau of permits, license division, City Treasury Cash Division, City Planning and Development office (CPDO), Zoning Division, City Engineering/Building Office including its Electrical Division, Manila Health Department, Electronic Data Processing (EDP).

Established to streamline procedures for the issuance of local business permits and licensing system of a local government unit, the one-stop shop will receive and approve applications, receive payments and issue or approve licenses, clearances, permits and authorizations.

In another development, Moreno warned that the city government will pursue the campaign to stop meat vendors from selling unsafe meat.

The Manila Veterinary Inspection Board (VIB), he said, confiscated 532 killos of ‘botcha’ or ‘hot meat’  worth P80,000 which were being sold on El Cano Street in Divisoria and also in Recto, Manila Thursday afternoon, after receiving information from netizens.

The meat did not meet safety standards and come from the accredited slaughterhouse of the city, Moreno said.
