DRN 2011 Vol. XXIX No. 6: The Paradox of Local Economic Enterprises: A Look at the Philippine Setting

The Local Government Code of 1991 is supposed to transfer some of the regulatory functions of the national government as well as more social service responsibilities to the local government units (LGUs). It is common knowledge that public services such as health care, education, conservation of the environment, and livelihood entail not only the administrative and technical capabilities but more importantly, demand huge budget allocations because such projects and programs indeed require funding. The lead feature of this issue delves on one of the schemes that LGUs have engaged in to spur activities for income generation––the local economic enterprises (LEEs). It looks at the original role of LEEs as partners of LGUs in providing basic goods and services to their localities and spurring economic growth in general. It also notes how LEEs have evolved through the years, from traditional slaughter houses, public cemeteries, and transport terminals to being more sophisticated undertakings.
