Chairman's Message

Welcome to the Regional Board of Investments Website!

The website is an integral part of RBOI's effort to improve its services. Through this channel, potential investors are informed on how to go through the procedures and requirements in availing tax holidays, tax and duty exemption of imported capital equipment, among others. The site provides information for investment opportunities and venue for feedbacks for us to know your concerns so we could propose investment-friendly solutions.

Under the new term of the Hataman Administration, RBOI is tasked to lead the Economic Cluster of the ARMM Regional Government (ARG), providing directions for economic reforms. This agency is challenged to give its best to uplift the lives of the ARMM people by giving emphasis to investment generation and jobs creation.

With fresh mandate, this agency is now strengthening its investment promotion and facilitation strategies. We will continue empowering our Local Government Units (LGUs) to become investment ready. This is through the conduct of Networking on Investments for Local Executives (NILE). RBOI will assist the LGUs to formulate their own Local Investments and Incentives Code (LIIC) and develop promotional strategies expected to spur local business growth.

Currently, the multi-national company Del Monte Fresh Produce Inc. (Philippines) has invested worth P569 Million for banana plantations in Datu Abdullah Sangki, Province of Maguindanao. The banana venture is a clear manifestation that ARMM has gained the confidence and trust of investors to make business in the region.

Other than Del Monte, more investors are anticipating to invest in the region to take part in these exciting times wherein the ground works for the establishment of the new autonomous political entity, the Bangsamoro Government are being set and for sure will benefit the business community.

With these positive changes happening in ARMM and with our agency's crucial role in the development process, RBOI remains committed working with institutions such as the private sector, the LGUs and government agencies in supporting the goal of inclusive growth, lasting peace and good governance.

We, in RBOI will continue to cultivate partnerships with our existing registered investors and shall provide quality services to would be investors of ARMM, because beyond government, it is the private sector that will push economic growth.

We thank you for your relentless trust.
