In the recently concluded Ease of Doing Business Summit organized by the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA), Manila Water was presented with the award for “Doing Business, Competitiveness Ranking Mover - Dealing with Construction Permits (DWCP)” category. This is in recognition of the company’s efficient stakeholder engagement with local government units, particularly the Quezon City government, in aiding customers in securing construction permits related to new water service applications.

In the summit, with the theme “Doing Business in Action: Pursuing Greater Efficiency Towards the New Normal”, ARTA highlighted the streamlining, re-engineering, and e-governance initiatives it has accomplished and implemented in the past year, as well as the projects and programs in the pipeline, all of which are geared towards the further enhancement of government service delivery strategies and promotion of ease of doing business in the country.

A portion of the summit was dedicated to recognizing significant efforts of partners, such as Manila Water, aligned with the parameters of the World Bank – Doing Business Report. The award, which was presented by ARTA Director General Jeremiah B. Belgica, was received by Manila Water Enterprise Regulatory Affairs Director for East Zone, Atty. Kaye Celera-Revil on behalf of the company. “We are grateful for this recognition for Manila Water as it affirms our priority of caring for our customers through proactive partnership and efficient delivery of our services for all our stakeholders,” Revil shared.
