Palawan News - - BUSINESS -

The Palawan Pro­vin­cial Eco­nomic En­ter­prise De­vel­op­ment Of­fice (PEEDO) spon­sored re­cently a Small Busi­ness Coun­selors Course in a bid to strengthen the mi­cro, small and medium en­ter­prises (MSME) in the prov­ince. Dr. Myrna La­cani­lao, PEEDO of­fi­cer-in-charge, said Mon­day the coun­selors’ busi­ness course was done on Septem­ber 4-7, 2018, to en­hance the com­pe­tence and con­fi­dence of mu­nic­i­pal busi­ness men­tors to pro­vide ad­min­is­tra­tive and tech­ni­cal as­sis­tance to MSME clients. She said the course will pre­pare the busi­ness coun­selors in the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties to as­sist MSME clients on how they should face is­sues that con­cern their ven­tures by pro­vid­ing sound bits of ad­vice that can help them. The first day of the ac­tiv­ity was han­dled by as­sis­tant re­gional di­rec­tor Rodolfo Marispoque of the Depart­ment of Trade and In­dus­try (DTI)-MIMAROPA. He in­spired the busi­ness men­tors to en­cour­age star­tups to per­se­vere and not be dis­cour­aged by fail­ures in the early stages of their ven­ture projects. “Sa pagnenegosyo, lagi lang nat­ing tan­daan na ang puhu­nan ay hindi pera lang kundi ang pag­sisikap, kaala­man at tal­ento ay inyo ring puhu­nan,” he said. La­cani­lao said the pro­vi­sion of the course to the busi­ness men­tors was timely be­cause the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment is aim­ing to strengthen the MSMEs, be­liev­ing they can help boost Palawan’s econ­omy in their own ways. “It is a per­fect venue to learn. Sana marami tay­ong matu­tu­nan sa gawaing ito dahil malak­ing tu­long ito sa atin lalo na kung may mga prob­lema tay­ong mae-en­counter,” said La­cani­lao. She said the at­ten­dees were taught strate­gies to set up MSME busi­ness ven­tures, fi­nan­cial plan, hu­man re­source man­age­ment, fi­nan­cial anal­y­sis, en­ter­prise de­vel­op­ment func­tions, and busi­ness coun­sel­ing process and Palawan eco­nomic man­dates. The busi­ness course was at­tended by par­tic­i­pants from Roxas, Narra, Rizal, Sofro­nio Es­pañola, Que­zon, San Vi­cente, Araceli, Tay­tay, Culion, Bataraza, Bataraza, Brooke’s Point, El Nido and Puerto Princesa City. Other course speak­ers who at­tended were Re­nea Cruz Tan, masters in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion, Engr. Ya­mani A. Saed and Crispina B. Al­monte, fa­cil­i­ta­tors at the Cen­ter for Re­search and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion. (PR)
