ANGELES CITY -- Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) looks forward for the implementation of 71 Shared Service Facilities (SSF) projects this 2015 worth P52.46 million.
“SSF is a strategy adopted to achieve the goal of the National Industry Cluster Capacity Enhancement Project which is to set up common production centers in order for Small and Medium Enterprises in priority industry clusters gain access to better technology and more sophisticated equipment thereby increasing their competitiveness, consequently affecting their contribution to the national economy,” DTI OIC-Regional Director Judith Angeles said.
To ensure continuity of the program, each SSF has a counterpart cooperator from the private sector who shall supervise the use and ensure maintenance of the given equipment.
“Last year, we have provided P40.8 million worth of equipment that benefitted 7,899 entrepreneurs. These were used for food processing, organic fertilizer, metalcraft making, and bag production among others,” Angeles added.
Nueva Ecija received the biggest chunk of this at P6.84 million for 8 cooperators followed by Pampanga with P6.78 million for 15 cooperators, and Bataan with P5.92 million for 7 cooperators.
