President Rodrigo Duterte said he would reduce the processing time for issuing business permits and licenses "to the barest minimum," as he cracked down on red tape.

"In my city, it is always three days for local governments, that will bind the Office of the President down to barangay level," he said in his first State of the Nation Address.

Duterte said motor vehicle plates should also be issued at the point of sale to prevent backlogs at the Land Transportation Office.

The validity of driver's licenses will also be extended from the current three years to five years. -- ANC, July 25, 2016
