DTI launches Roving Academy to train SMEs, focus on exportation
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) launched on Tuesday the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) Roving Academy for the “development of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME),” to be competitive not just in local, but also in international markets.
The program is in partnership with MSME Development Council (MSMEDC) to provide MSMEs with “workshop-like training sessions” in the development of their operations.
This, like any other projects of the government, presses for “inclusive growth,” which give attention and support to clusters and cooperative MSMEs.
“We will integrate various services provided by all government agencies and private sector organization that are into SME development,” said Jerry Clavesillas, Bureau of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Development (BMSMED) officer in charge.
“We are harmonizing all government interventions. At the end of the program intervention, we can determine the benefits that have been provided by the government and non-government organizations to a sector, and the same time we can measure its impact,” he added.
