THE Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will bring the E-commerce Caravan to Cebu on June 10.

In a statement, DTI said the caravan was launched in April with a series of Negosyo Center seminars that attracted over 700 prospective online merchants.

“By introducing e-commerce, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) nationwide are exposed to a wider range of options on how to expand their market reach and do business with ease,” Supervising Undersecretary for E-Commerce Prudencio M. Reyes Jr. stated.

The e-commerce seminars are designed to engage MSMEs into becoming online merchants. The seminars provide a venue for e-commerce champions, gurus and service providers to share their know-how and expertise on e-commerce.

Participants learn how to avail of existing facilities such as e-payment, logistics, customer relations management, as well as how to strengthen brand presence, brand marketing and ensure consumer protection.

“There are no geographical limitations, operation is 24 hours, 7 days a week, targeted buyers are close to 45 million in the Philippines alone, and businesses can already go beyond the brick and mortar setting,” Reyes added.

Virgilio P. Fulgencio, E-Commerce Office head, said in the same statement that nearly 250 MSMEs have registered in various e-commerce platforms as a result of the seminars.
