Negros exporters, SMEs attend IT-BPM seminar

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) initiated a capacity building seminar for Information Technology – Business Process Management (IT-BPM) services. The seminar was attended by at least 60 exporters and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Negros Occidental. The seminar was part of DTI’s efforts to boost local exporters, particularly on IT-BPM related services, to intensify the implementation of its Regional Interactive Platform for the Philippines Plus program. The DTI said trade and services as information are not yet so common especially in the regional and provincial levels. Based on DTI records, the estimated 200 IT-enabled firms nationwide covered by the government program do not include firms from Negros Occidental.
