The Board of Investments (BOI) launched a site as part of its campaign to help businesses adapt and recover from the crisis. The site will provide relevant information and business assistance for entrepreneurs and investors in this pandemic.

“We are constantly listening and talking to businesses across the Philippines in our efforts to help them through these difficult times. I am delighted to offer this resource, and the help of our dedicated business specialists, both of which are there to respond to the needs of businesses, whatever problems they may be having,” says BOI managing head and Trade Undersecretary Ceferino Rodolfo.

Policies and programs are available on the website, including a guide on how businesses can manage goods and workers in quarantine zones. Advice on special investment incentives, such as tax discounts and duty-free importation of capital equipment, are also being offered. Users can also check investment opportunities as well as contact government agencies that provide financial support on business loans and rents.

There are also sections for manufacturing, tourism, supply chain and business partners. For those that need more dedicated help, they can book an appointment to talk with a BOI investment specialist via their Facebook page. Entrepreneurs can also register in their electronic newsletter for updates.
