CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, April 6 (PIA) -- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) are teaming up to help micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) expand their market reach online through the OneSTore.ph platform.
The OneSTore.ph is the first government e-commerce platform dedicated to marketing high-quality Filipino products of MSMEs through the worldwide web by “bringing quality products to Filipino doorsteps."
Under the OneSTore.ph agreement, DTI will promote the oneSTore.ph to MSMEs through Negosyo Centers as a platform where they can market their products online.
DTI will also make Negosyo Centers accessible to clients of DOST and allow clients to display and dispatch their products with its payment and logistic partners in the One Town One Product (OTOP) Philippines HubStores.
OTOP Philippines is DTI’s collaborative program with national government agencies and local government units as a customized intervention to level up the products of various localities and drive inclusive local economic growth.
DOST, on the other hand, will develop and maintain oneSTore.ph where its accredited Regional Hubs and MSMEs may sell products and services to its clients and engage with payment and logistics partners and provide better oneSTore.ph services to its accredited Regional Hubs, MSMEs, and its partner agencies.
DOST will also provide priority to jointly identified OTOP products for product development initiatives including improvements in packaging and labeling, subsidy or discounts in testing fees, equipment support such as the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program, and strengthen research and development efforts.
