CEBU, Philippines - The Mandaue Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) aims to re-align its existing programs with the thrusts of the Duterte administration.

MCCI president Glenn Soco said the chamber is already coordinating with the Department of Trade and Industry for the expansion of its OBRA Negosyo program.

Soco said MCCI will be participating in the mentorship program initiated by DTI by nominating members to be part of the network of professional mentors.

He added that the chamber also supports the administration’s anti-drug campaign in fact MCCI will be pushing for compulsory drug testing in companies as well as provide employment or therapy interventions for drug dependents.

"We have to fine tune our existing programs, and may introduce newer advocacies on pressing issues," Soco said.

He mentioned the worsening traffic issue in Mandaue as something that needs support from the private sector. He said the business sector will ask the Mandaue City government to participate in the traffic management planning.

Existing programs of MCCI will be enhanced to adapt to the present needs of micro and small businesses, such as the "Obra Negosyo Eskwela, Winners or the "Women in Need Now Entrepreneurs and Role Models", among others.

These kinds of existing programs of MCCI will be repackaged and be aligned to the thrusts of the new Duterte-led government.

According to Soco, although the chamber is celebrating the Mandaue Business Month in August, simultaneous works will be done to push for the implementation of fresh advocacies and sharpened version of existing programs. (FREEMAN)
