Management Association of the Philippines to promote ARMM’s investment drive

COTABATO CITY - The Management Association of the Philippines (MAP) expressed support in promoting the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) as an investment destination.
 
In a manifesto signed by its top officials on Monday, the MAP urged its members and its various committees to integrate action plans in coordination with the ARMM’s Regional Board of Investment (RBOI-ARMM) to achieve this objective.
 
The document, the MAP said, “manifests long term commitment to advocate policies for a competitive and stable policy environment to encourage and enable private sector investments in the ARMM and to support productivity programs/projects in tourism, seaweeds, mariculture, tree crops, basic infrastructure, energy, education, research, SME (small and medium enterprises) among other opportunities under the RBOI IPP (Investment Priorities Plan).”
 
The group’s commitment came after Atty. Ishak Mastura, RBOI-ARMM chairman, told the country’s top managers that the region is ready for business. Chairman Mastura was invited by the MAP to present RBOI-ARMM’s advocacies on tourism, ease of doing business, financing, and agribusiness, among others.
 
All businesses, including foreign investors, are welcome in ARMM, Chairman Mastura said. Prospective investors in the region, he said, want access to financing from local banks to balance the risk.
 
“If you give access to financing, we will find the investors for you,” the RBOI-ARMM chief told MAP officials who represent the county’s biggest businesses including major financial institutions. Chairman Mastura noted that currently, banks hardly lend to private businesses in ARMM even as big companies based in the National Capital Region are not coming in.
 
Among those present in the dialogue between the RBOI-ARMM and the MAP are former Interior and Local Government secretary Rafael Alunan, former Foreign Affairs secretary Albert del Rosario, former Board of Investments chief Melito Salazar, former Tourism secretary Mina Gabor, former Socio Economic Planning Secretary Cielito Habito, and American Chamber of Commerce Philippines president John Forbes.
 
MAP’s committees cover Agribusiness and Countryside Development; Trade, Investments and Tourism; Energy; Management Development; and Traffic, Transportation and Infrastructure. (Bureau of Public Information)

BIFF bomb expert killed in Maguindanao clash

KIDAPAWAN CITY – Security forces killed a suspected bomb maker in a gun battle following a raid before sunrise Monday in the restive southern Philippine province of Maguindanao, officials said.
Officials said Murad Ali, a member of the militant group Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighter, was slain in Datu Odin Sinsuat town after police commandos and army soldiers stormed his hiding place in the village called Capiton.
It was not immediately known how security forces tracked down Ali, a follower of slain BIFF leader Abdul Basit Usman who was killed by members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) in May 2015. Officials did not say if the MILF – which signed an interim peace deal with Manila in 2014 – provided intelligence on Ali.
But officials said troops seized automatic weapons and grenades, and components for improvised explosives from Ali’s hideout.
The killing of Ali also coincided on bombing at a market place in Isulan town in Sultan Kudarat province after 3 men on a motorcycle left a bag containing an improvised explosive. The men immediately escaped after a security guard noticed them and the bag later exploded. No one was hurt in the blast. (Rhoderick Beñez)

She said the surrender was a joint efforts between the 33rd and 57th Infantry Battalions. Those who surrendered have been identified as Ayob Mopac, Benjamin Kalay, Samuel Badak, Mel Pandi, Kang Mopac, Tiin Mooac, Usad Mopac, Long Oding, Sebio Masandag, Gabriel Mopac, and Nonoy Lapi.
The military is expected to provide financial aid and livelihood training skills to those who surrendered as part of a government effort to reintegrate them back to society. But
The NPA, which has been fighting for separatism, did not release any statement, but rebel leaders usually disown those who surrender and would typically claim that it was a military propaganda. (Rhoderick Beñez)
