SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union, Philippines – The Office of the Ombudsman has recognized this city for implementing measures that ease the registration of new businesses and renewal of business permits.   

Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales, through deputy ombudsman Gerard Mosquera awarded the Blue Certification Level 1 to the city government on Feb. 16.

“The Ombudsman was elated that we have opened our transactions and record for them because they say that most local government units are afraid to open their books for them to verify,” San Fernando City Mayor Pablo Ortega said.

The awarding ceremony was held at the Office of the Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon in Diliman, Quezon City. The ombudsman said the certification would expire on Feb. 15, 2019.
