The trade and industry committee of the Provincial Board is deliberating on a proposed resolution urging local government units (LGUs) to put a seal marked “Tatak Palaweño” on the mayor’s permits that will be issued to local owners of products and businesses in the province.
Resolution proponent ex-officio board member Clarito Demaala IV explained Tuesday that the seal aims to promote the province’s thriving economy and to encourage more Palaweños to put up similar businesses that would provide additional jobs.
“Dito sa Palawan ang dami ng hindi taga-dito na nag-ooperate ng negosyo na iba-iba, hindi lang food business kundi mga van rentals at iba pa. Ang atin lang ay gusto natin na matulungan ang ating kapwa Palaweño na sila ang mauna, hindi ang sa iba,” he said.
However, Demaala clarified that they are still supporting foreign-owned business establishments but also wants to distinguish them from Palaweño-owned products and businesses.
He added they wanted to prioritize local businesses in Palawan than promoting foreign services or products.
“Dini-distingush natin ‘yong mga may-ari na mga foreigners para kahit papaano maprioritize ang mga negosyante na mga taga-Palawan,” Demaala said.
He added that the seal will be placed on the mayor’s permit provided all necessary documents have complied with the standard operating procedures on how to apply.
“Ibibigay ito sa kanila ng kanilang LGU, tulad ng proseso sa pagkuha ng permit kasi doon din ito ilalagay ang seal,” Demaala said.
He said it will also inform other people that the establishments and the products patronize raw materials and manpower services that are locally-sourced.
