MNCCI meets with city dads, holds forum
City government officials and businessmen belonging to the Metro Naga Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MNCCI) will meet today, March 22, to thresh out some issues concerning the general welfare of the city like the power outages that continuously hound local power users for six weeks now.
Also to be taken as important topic in the forum is the proposed ordinance in the Sangguniang Panglunsod which aims to ban or regulate the use of plastics by commercial establishments.
The matter along with the report to be delivered by MNCCI President Philip T. Imperial and Mayor John G. Bongat’s 1st Quarter 2012 and Study Tour Reports will be the highlights of MNCCI’s General Membership Meeting and Business Forum for the first quarter of 2012.
The MNCCI has been recognized as outstanding chamber by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) for three consecutive years, a feat that eventually earned for it its Hall of Fame status.
Imperial said city councilors who authored and supported the ‘plastics’ ordinance are also expected to participate in the forum along with the technical men and members of the board of directors of Camarines Sur II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Casureco II).
The forum attendees will also be updated on other city ordinances and legislative undertakings in the Sanggunian.
Claro L. Alfonso, president of NAMASFED, a vendors association in the Naga City Public Mall, will discuss business zoning within the market, to be followed by a presentation by the Naga City Urban Development Council (NCUDC).
An oath-taking of new members will also be held during the meeting which will be followed by the closing remarks of MNCCI Executive Vice President Clarine Palomares-Tobias, who is this year’s chairman of Halyao Awards to be held in December 2012.
