QC deploys electronic service kiosks in barangays and shopping malls
MANILA – Quezon City residents can now access local government services even in their respective barangays and shopping center business centers through the QC E-Services kiosks.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Mayor Joy Belmonte said the launch of the QC E-services kiosks was aimed at making municipal services more accessible to its residents.
“Here in Quezon City, we want to bring our services closer to the people so they don’t have to come to town hall to do their transactions, they can just do it online or through our kiosks. We value their business, and we value their time, ”Belmonte said.
She said that through electronic service kiosks, residents can now request services under the One Stop Shop for Business; register for the QCitizen ID, QC Vax Easy, apply for a work permit, a health and sanitary permit; apply for Pangkabuhayang QC and Kalingang QC which are available for business; pay property tax; and apply for an identity card for the disabled and for the elderly.
Belmonte said the ease of doing business is one of the city’s priorities for attracting more investors and for businesses to thrive in Quebec, especially now that the government is pushing the reopening of businesses amid the pandemic of coronavirus disease (Covid-19).
She added that they wanted the city to be a preferred business destination in Metro Manila.
The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the country’s economy as most businesses have closed due to quarantine restrictions.
Metro Manila is now on the less restrictive Alert Level 2, allowing more people to leave their homes as other businesses have been allowed to resume operations.
In addition to bringing its services closer to its residents, the city government has also launched several initiatives that help businesses get started. (ANP)
