AI for all: Marcos government targets MSMEs in tech ups killing drive

President Marcos directed the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to help micro, small, and medium-sized businesses (MSMEs) leverage Artificial Intelligence (AI).

This initiative aims to equip MSMEs with the tools to navigate economic challenges and adapt to evolving technological demands.

Marcos said the focus should be on practical applications, not the technical complexities of AI systems.

“We are not teaching them to be engineers, AI engineers. We’re not teaching them to be blockchain engineers. We’re teaching them how to use the system that we have provided. That, I think, we have to be clear about that,” Marcos said.


This government push to introduce AI to MSMEs is seen as a way to streamline business processes and make it easier to operate.

MSMEs are a vital part of the Philippine economy, accounting for nearly all businesses and a significant portion of employment.
