Five gov't satellite offices open inside Subic Bay Freeport Zone

Mall goers in Subic Bay can now do business while shopping as five national government agencies recently opened their satellite offices inside the Harbor Point Mall.

This was made possible after the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Social Security System (SSS) and PhilHealth signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Ayala-owned mall for the maintenance of their offices.

Said move primarily aims to provide clients with easier and more comfortable access to various services of the government.

During the MOA Signing and ribbon-cutting, DTI Regional Director Judith Angeles expressed her gratitude to Harbor Point for enabling DTI and other government agencies to prove their commitment in bringing their services closer to people.

"I hope that by next year, the DTI office here can also expand and be enrolled as a Negosyo Center,” she added.

Aside from Angeles, DILG Regional Director Florita Dijan, SSS Assistant Vice President Vilma Agapito, and Harbor Point Deputy Operations Manager Derrick Manuel also led the ribbon cutting.

Serving as witnesses to the MOA Signing were Subic Freeport Chamber of Commerce Chairman Emeritus Danny Piano and Director Cynthia Paulino. (CLJD/MJLS-PIA 3)
