“As we are leaning towards digitalization of the government procedures in the pursuit of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s administration; we in the SEC continue to advocate for information dissemination and other similar programs to reach out to these sectors such as this initiative of the DTI” says Lawyer Frederick A. Enopia, Director of SEC-CDOEO.
Through SEC-ESPARC, the registration of company is made easier, faster and more convenient.
