BSMED, PTTC collab for 2-day entrepreneurship event

In celebration of the SMED Week 2015, the DTI – Bureau of Small Enterprise Development (BSMED) with the help of the Philippine Trade Training Center (PTTC) will open a two-day entrepreneurship event under the SME Roving Academy (SMERA) on July 24 to 25 at the PTTC, Sen. Gil Puyat Ave. corner Roxas Boulevard Pasay City.

The two-day festivities will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will involve conduct of various demo-skills and business management training programs.

With the theme, “Strengthening MSMEs Participation in the Global and Regional Trade,” the event’s main objective is to enhance the operational capabilities of MSMEs, expose them to current business trends, and improve their skills to compete in local and global markets.

Included in the list of 61 free training sessions during the event is the “Orientation Session on the ILO Community-based Enterprise Development” to be conducted by an International Labour Organization representative on July 24 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon at PTTC Room C.

Community-Based Enterprise Development (C-BED) is an innovative ILO training program to strengthen the business skills of aspiring entrepreneurs and small enterprise owners.

For the past two years, the entrepreneurship events were attended by an average of 4,038 participants on a total of 96 combined training sessions in the last two years.

The two-day entrepreneurship event is open and free to the public but will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Pre-registration is not required.
