BOI-One Window Network (BOI-OWN). Board of Investments (BOI) Executive Director Efren V. Leaño delivers the Welcome Remarks during the Soft Launch Ceremony of the BOI-One Window Network (BOI-OWN) on August 19, 2015 at the BOI Penthouse in Makati City. The project is a cloud-based web portal and mobile application system that enables investors not only to lodge queries and concerns online but also access a databank of information related to business and investments. It also includes a system that can track and monitor the real time status of investor’s inquiry and concerns using personal computers or smart phones. At the same time, it will provide a mechanism for the monitoring of government’s compliance to the Anti-Red Tape Act (ARTA) of 2007. BOI-OWN is aligned with the Philippine Development Plan’s (PDP) goal of achieving a better business environment by streamlining bureaucratic procedures and making it more conducive to business procedures. Leaño expressed confidence that this innovation will minimize the cost of doing business and contribute to the improvement of the country’s global competitiveness with the inflow of more investments in the long run.
