Let’s get in touch.
We’d love to hear from you.
Former National Competitiveness Council co-chair Bill Luz, DTI Undersecretary Rowel Barba, and Presidential Adviser Joey Concepcion discuss the government mindset in facilitating the ease of doing business at the National MSME Summit 2018.
In continuing our advocacy to help micro, small, and medium entrepreneurs, we supported Secretary Mon Lopez and the Department of Trade and Industry’s National MSME Development Summit last July 10 at the ASEAN Convention Center, Clark, Pampanga. As the vice chair of the National MSMED Council, it is my duty to be part of this momentous gathering of mentors and micro and small entrepreneurs.

I joined the forum with DTI Undersecretary Rowel Barba to discuss the government mindset in facilitating the ease of doing business. The private sector is one with the government in creating a healthy entrepreneurship environment for all Filipinos.
