Tacloban is the economic center of the Eastern Visayas region focusing largely on commerce, tourism, education, culture, and government in the region.  The city is perfect for investment opportunities such as mass housing projects, food establishments, fish canning and processing, furniture making, financial services, and technology-related businesses.

To further contribute to the city’s entrepreneurial growth, this July 12, 2019, Go Negosyo will bring its Mentor ME On Wheels in Tacloban City happening at the Event Center of Robinson Place Tacloban.

“With the right mindset and level of creativity and innovation, most of you will shine and persevere in the business community. The government, with the help of DTI, Go Negosyo and the private sector, will be here to mentor you especially in areas on how to use and source money to grow your business and on how to reach more markets for your products and services.” Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo Founder Joey Concepcion.

The program will be led by Ginggay Hontiveros-Malvar, Go Negosyo Adviser for Agripreneurship and  Mindanao Development Programs. Hon. Leopoldo Dominico Petilla*, Provincial Governor of Leyte, Hon. Alfred Romualdez*, City Mayor of Tacloban City, Hon. Jerry Yaokasin*, Vice Mayor of Tacloban City; Dir. Celerina T.
