THE DEPARTMENT of Trade and Industry and the Quirino State University partnered to help in the digitalization of micro, small and medium enterprises.

Project BRIDGED: BRIDging the Gaps in the Era of Digitalization will help businesses and the local government units integrate their business online as it focuses on e-commerce, investment and technology.

“E-commerce shall focus on the development of an online platform where MSMEs can promote and sell their products; Investment component shall concentrate on the development of a website for the LGUs where potential local and foreign investors can access investment-related information,” DTI Quirino said in its Facebook page.

It added that the technology component “shall circle mainly on the capacitation of MSMEs on the various technological developments such as [the] shift to cashless payments and use of various graphic designing applications.”

DTI-Quirino and QSU signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the project last week.

It was attended by QSU President Dr. Elizabeth Carig, other executives and DTI R2 Quirino OIC Provincial Director Mary Ann Corpuz-Dy.
