BACOLOD City – Around 318 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) learned entrepreneurship and business planning in the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) training in Negros Occidental this year.
DTI provincial director Lea Gonzales said the seminar equips the participants with knowledge on generating business ideas and business operation.
“This is to promote entrepreneurial mindset among Negrenses, especially balikbayans and potential micro, small and medium enterprises,” she added.
The DTI Negosyo Center in Bacolod City holds training every Tuesday and the Negros First Negosyo Center conducts every Friday.
“We have 28 latest trainees who attended the DTI seminar held at the Negros First Negosyo Center on March8,” Gonzales said.
The trainings are part of the DTI’s Entrepreneurship Development Program for OFWs in partnership with the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration. (With PN/PN)
