24 Ne­grense OFWS get boost thru ba­sic en­trepreneur­ship train­ing

Sun Star Bacolod - - Business -

TWENTY four over­seas Filipino work­ers (OFWS) in Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal have at­tended the ba­sic en­trepreneur­ship train­ing ini­ti­ated by the Depart­ment of Trade and In­dus­try (DTI).

The ac­tiv­ity held at the Negosyo Cen­ter in Ba­colod City yes­ter­day is part of the week-long cel­e­bra­tion of the agency for the es­tab­lish­ment of 1,000 Negosyo Cen­ters in the coun­try.

These OFWS are po­ten­tial and ex­ist­ing mi­cro, small and medium en­ter­prises (MSMES) IN the prov­ince, Dti-ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal said.

The train­ing aims to equip the par­tic­i­pants with the knowl­edge on gen­er­at­ing busi­ness ideas, guide them to a proper busi­ness im­ple­men­ta­tion, and spread the en­tre­pre­neur­ial mind­set among stake­hold­ers, it added.

The ac­tiv­ity is be­ing im­ple­mented mainly for repa­tri­ated and dis­tressed over­seas work­ers through the DTI’S En­trepreneur­ship De­vel­op­ment Pro­gram for OFWS.

This is in part­ner­ship with the Over­seas Worker Wel­fare Ad­min­is­tra­tion (Owwa).

On Wed­nes­day, Dtine­gros Oc­ci­den­tal also con­ducted the Barangay Mi­cro Busi­ness En­ter­prise (BMBE) Fo­rum which was par­tic­i­pated by 46 po­ten­tial and ex­ist­ing MSMES in the prov­ince.

The BMBE fo­rum is a tool for eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment by pro­mot­ing an en­tre­pre­neur­ial mind­set to Filipinos in­clud­ing Ne­grense en­trepreneurs, the agency said.*
