Women entreprenuers would play an important role in recovery of the Philippine economy after the pandemic.
This was highlighted by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) as it recently paid tribute to women-led micro, small and medium entrepreneurs (MSMEs) during the virtual graduation ceremony for the 3A program which stands for “Accept, Adapt, Act.”
The DTI also launched the 3A program batch 2 Handog Kabuhayan: Alay Kay Juana.
“Today, as we celebrate International Women’s Day, we want to highlight the extraordinary roles of women-led MSMEs, or micro, small and medium entrepreneurs o MSMEs. With the help of our MSMEs, our country can be more hopeful for a post-Covid future that will be poised for a Better Normal,” Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez said.
He said DTI remains committed to assisting women-led MSMEs and aspiring entrepreneurs who will be champions to push for the economy’s growth to pre-Covid levels and beyond.
The 3A program is the integrated training program of the DTI-Regional Operations Group (ROG), Bureau of Small and Medium Enterprise Development (BSMED), and the Philippine Trade Training Center (PTTC) targeted at helping MSMEs evolve amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.
