The Department of Trade and Industry has partnered with Lalamove to strengthen the country’s micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
“With logistics partner Lalamove, we hope to bridge the gap between Central Luzon communities and shine a light on the beauty of Filipino craftsmanship, creativity, and ingenuity. It enables MSMEs to reach wider markets without compromising affordability and efficiency, and ultimately, boost regional commerce across the country,” DTI-3 assistant regional director Brigida Pili said.
The Regional Development Council-3 and the Central Luzon Growth Corridor Foundation Inc. said the collaboration will drive inclusive economic growth across all regions, provinces and cities.
Dannah Majarocon, managing director of Lalamove Philippines, said the partnership is aimed at improving the accessibility of local entrepreneurs.
“As an advocate for MSME growth and empowerment, especially at the regional level, we hope to serve as a platform that enables connection among markets and communities in the Philippines, starting with Central Luzon,” she said.
