De­part­ment of Trade and In­dus­try (DTI) Sec­re­tary Ra­mon Lopez (5th from L) brought the agency's Tra­baho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan (TNK) sem­i­nar to Over­seas Filipino Work­ers (OFWs) in Shang­hai on 6 Novem­ber. Sec. Lopez en­cour­aged OFWs to ride on the solid growth of the Philip­pine econ­omy and en­cour­age their fam­i­lies back home to be more en­ter­pris­ing. The TNK sem­i­nar was held at the Li­way­way Fac­tory—known for its snack food brand Oishi—in Qingpu and was at­tended by over 200 OFWs. Other speak­ers who of­fered in­sights on start­ing a busi­ness were Philip­pine Fran­chise As­so­ci­a­tion Trustee Sher­ill Quin­tana, who talked about how to in­vest in the right fran­chise; and First Metro Se­cu­ri­ties Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Head An­doy Bel­tran (3rd from L) who tack­led how to raise cap­i­tal ef­fi­ciency through var­i­ous fi­nan­cial in­stru­ments. DTI Ex­port Mar­ket­ing Bu­reau Di­rec­tor Se­nen Per­lada (left­most) also dis­cussed Ex­ports and Trad­ing 101, and gave an over­view of Philip­pines and China trade trends and op­por­tu­ni­ties. DTI's TNK pro­gram is a part­ner­ship ini­tia­tive with the pri­vate sec­tor, academe, and civil so­ci­ety that aims to pro­mote en­trepreneur­ship in or­der to gen­er­ate jobs for and in­crease the in­come of Filipinos. Mem­bers of the var­i­ous Filipino com­mu­ni­ties at­tended the TNK in Shang­hai. Also present at the event were PH Am­bas­sador to China Jose San­ti­ago 'Chito' Sta. Ro­mana (6th from L), Con­sul Gen­eral Wil­fredo Cuyu­gan (4th from R), Li­way­way Pres­i­dent Larry Chan (3rd from R), DTI Un­der­sec­re­tary Nora Ter­rado (4th from L), DTI-Philip­pine Trade and In­vest­ment Cen­ter (PTIC) Bei­jing Com­mer­cial Coun­sel­lor Glenn Peñaranda (right­most), and DTI-PTIC Guangzhou Com­mer­cial Vice Con­sul John Paul Iñigo (2nd from L).
