Republic Act (R.A.) No. 11032 or the “Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018”
Are bureaucratic woes and red-tape soon a thing of the past? The Philippines vows to fight red-tape, ease the conduct business transactions, and ensure efficient processes with an overhauled anti-red tape law.
The Philippines is about to turn this situation around and boost its competitiveness in the world stage. On 28 May 2018, Republic Act (R.A.) No. 11032 or the “Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018” (“EDB Law”) was signed into law.
