DTI-PTTC taps UnionBank’s UREKA Forum for free e-Commerce seminar

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) - Philippine Trade Training Center (PTTC) tapped the UREKA Forum – UnionBank’s flagship corporate social responsibility project – to offer free e-Commerce seminar to students and micro, small and medium enterprises in celebration of SME Week 2017.

The PTTC, an attached agency of the DTI mandated to design and implement training programs on entrepreneurial management and export development, among others, tapped the expertise of UREKA Forum for the e-Commerce seminar on July 18 at the PTTC headquarters along Roxas Boulevard in Pasay City.

UnionBank Vice President and UREKA Executive Director James Morris P. Ileto said they share DTI and PTTC’s goal to empower MSMEs.

“Similar to what we do in our fora, we held a mini-forum at the PTTC headquarters, where speakers and consortium partners shared their knowledge and experiences to the MSMEs. We also had a mini-circuit whereby the MSMEs could activate their online shops within the day,” Ileto said.

The UREKA Forum – the country’s biggest e-Commerce mass conversion program – has activated 1,500 MSMEs since it was launched in October 2015.

Its first forum was held in Baguio City, followed by stints in Iloilo and Davao in 2016 and in Manila last February.

The project supports the DTI’s target to deliver 100,000 MSMEs to e-Commerce by 2020.

Besides having websites and a full-function e-Commerce business platform by end of day, the MSMEs also gain wisdom from experts who are invited to the forum.

UREKA Forum’s consortium partners are leading industry experts Air21, AMTI, DragonPay, Shopinas, PLDT SME Nation, Facebook, among others, as well as government agencies like the DTI, Department of Information and Communications Technology, Department of Science and Technology and Department of Tourism.

The UREKA Special Mini-Forum offered free e-Commerce seminar to students and micro, small and medium enterprises in celebration of SME Week 2017.
