The Local Government of Baliwag and the Department of Trade and Industry jointly agreed to soft launch the center on June 28 even if the ViP Restrooms are still being constructed to be able to begin the service for the benefit of the business community. While the Business Permits and Licensing Office upgrades its list of business establishments with delinquency, the opening will benefit them as application of new DTI Registration will be done in Baliwag, saving them material time to go to Malolos. The Negosyo Center will also be home to the Chamber of Commerce and Industries of Baliwag, Inc, the recognized main business group recognized by the local government.
DTI postponed the scheduled visit of Sen. Bam Aquino as it anticipates the launch of Baliwag’s BOSS Center in line with its Seating Pretty ang Tax Payer sa Baliwag Program which was created thru an Executive Order signed by Mayor Ferdie Estrella. The EO is similar to the JMC issued by DILG, DTI and DoF aimed at streamlining the application and release of Business Permit.
Baliwag was rated this year by the Central Luzon Corridor Foundation with a 91% score from its previous rating of 79%
