MANILA – The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) hastens its thrust to make the new industrial policy more inclusive.
DTI encourages the involvement of local business community, local government units (LGUs), and the academe nationwide to partake in the development of industry roadmaps.
“By engaging our regional stakeholders, including small and medium enterprises (SMEs), local government and the academe, we hope to craft regional roadmaps that reflect a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges that could arise from the AEC and the EU GSP+,” said DTI Assistant Secretary RafaelitaAldaba.
DTI will hold conferences on “Industry Roadmaps and the AEC Game Plan: Roadmap Localization for Competitiveness” in key areas in the country with high interest in automotive manufacturing, electronics, petrochemical, and information technology and business process outsourcing such as Reion IV. pna
