DTI to promote gov’t online store in Negosyo Centers

MANILA -- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will be bringing the government’s first e-commerce platform that hosts products of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), for online selling in Negosyo Centers nationwide.

DTI will be partnering with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) to promote the latter’s oneSTore.ph to MSMEs for them to tap the online market. 
“MSMEs are the backbone of the Philippine economy. And as part of President Rodrigo Duterte’s whole-of-government approach to assist MSMEs, we are teaming up with DOST to impact the lives of more Filipino entrepreneurs,” DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez said.
With over 800 Negosyo Centers nationwide, DTI has strong links with MSMEs throughout the country. DOST’s oneSTore.ph is a business-to-customer and business-to-business online platform that helps DOST-assisted MSMEs widen its market, he explained.
The oneSTore.ph works like the typical e-commerce company, however this is owned by the government and hosts government-assisted MSMEs. (PNA)
