Bicol entrepreneur in APEC SME meet

by MS Arguelles

Legazpi City (21 October) -- A Bicol entrepreneur will represent country to the workshop on Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) global market network under the auspices of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation in Indonesia, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Bicol said on Tuesday.

Ma. Lydia Perez-Lomibao, owner of J. Emmanuel Pastries in Naga City, was chosen as the only Philippine representative to the SME's global workshop in Indonesia.

The gathering of entrepreneurs from all over the Asia- Pacific region, dubbed "Workshop and Training on Developing Trade House for Strengthening SME's Global Market Network, is being held at the Phoenix Hotel in Yogykarta, Indonesia from October 20 until 22.

J. Emmanuel Pastries exports quality pili nut products to developed countries like Japan, China, Australia, USA, and Canada.

DTI said the workshop is especially designed to examine the roles of trading houses and SME's direct exporters to local economic development.

Experts from selected APEC member economies are expected to present at the forum and share their experiences in trading house development across the APEC economies.

The workshop is a direct follow up activity similar to items in the 2008 SME's ministerial meeting in Chiclayo, Peru, that sought for the establishment, growth and development of micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises to increase their competitiveness in the global trading system.

The workshop is also intended to benefit women business owners to enable their larger proportion on involvement and increase their entrepreneurial skills.

The workshop is also expected to work for the reduction of regulatory burdens and more effective regulatory practices in order to increase competitiveness of SME's products in the global market.

Some 60 participants will come from APEC member countries such as China, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Peru, the Philippines, Russia, Thailand and Vietnam, and 20 more from other countries that are not APEC members. (PNA/PIA) [top]
