Incoming President Rodrigo Duterte met with Go Negosyo Executive Director Ramon Lopez last week in Davao, as he puts priority on initiatives that will assist and empower the millions of underprivileged Filipinos and micro and small entrepreneurs to level-up and beat poverty. Go Negosyo commits to continue its 11-year private-sector advocacy movement to support the government in helping communities to build a country of enterprising Filipinos and inclusive prosperity.
In our Go Negosyo: Meet the Presidentiables forum with President-elect Rodrigo Duterte last February, he reiterated that he will have programs to support the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the country to help alleviate poverty. He said that he will allocate a budget to the Department of Trade and Industry to help assist MSMEs and provide trainings and seminars for them. He knows that there are many micro entrepreneurs in the urban areas that still needs financial aid and additional technical support.
For the past 11 years, Go Negosyo has been helping create an enterprising nation through its programs that inspire and empower aspiring and micro, small and medium entrepreneurs. Through its sectoral programs, it addresses the concern of all micro entrepreneurs from different industries such as agriculture, tourism, retail, manufacturing, franchising, and many more. With partnership with different institutions, Go Negosyo has imparted the right mindset and knowhow to many Filipinos.
With the support of the Duterte administration to the advocacy, we can expect a strengthened and empowered entrepreneurship community.
