International express service provider DHL Express is partnering with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to assist the growth of the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprise (MSME) industry and boost international business opportunities in the Philippines.
DHL Express said that the collaboration will provide different market expansion opportunities to DTI’s Negosyo Centers clients in the country.
DHL Philippines head of commercial Eric Queppet said that this move “supports our aim to help MSMEs harness opportunities presented by the growth of cross-border e-commerce…”
