Not many are aware that the micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) contribute significantly to the economy and they comprise more than 99% of the total businesses in the country and generate more than 70% of the country’s workforce and more than 30% of the GDP.
Globe myBusiness Marketing Head, Celeste Porto believes the important role of the SMEs in the country and she explained, “SMEs play a crucial part in today’s society. It allows entrepreneurs to become financially independent and in turn create livelihood to millions of Filipinos across the country. Globe myBusiness is tapping on the power of technology to make sure local MSMEs are digitally equipped and connected amid the new normal brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
With this, Globe myBusiness is giving recognition to the local MSMEs – the modern-day heroes who play a critical role in the country’s economy this month through its Saludo SMEs campaign.
