Manufacturing, Payment Systems, Logistics, and Skills Upgrading and Retooling

Digital transformation has been an ongoing movement in all industries for the past two decades. Companies around the world have been adopting technology and innovation in different aspects of their operations; from marketing, inventory, logistics, and finances–some adopting faster than others. However, the recent pandemic has not only challenged Philippine exporters but required them to use technology to hurdle lockdowns and other restrictions, not only in the Philippines but abroad as well. This panel will share practices on how Philippine exporters can use new technologies available to help them adapt to the New Normal.
The DTI will be accorded to exporters that achieved the highest value of a one-year stellar record of export revenue performance. Service exporters and RIPPLES Plus enrollees from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao will also be given recognition for their outstanding success in penetrating global markets. And finally, exporters that achieved the highest export revenues in their respective sectors the last 3 years will be awarded the Hall of Fame Award.
This is to acknowledge their contribution to the export performance of the country, working together with Philippine small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and remaining committed as major partners for the creation of jobs and investments in the Philippines.
Connectivity, Digital Payment, e-Commerce, Education, and Training

With the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Philippine government faces the challenge of creating an enabling environment for businesses to flourish, amidst the New Normal. Policies and processes that have been established for years are suddenly impractical and no longer appropriate to exporters’ needs. This panel will discuss how various government agencies are implementing new programs and working together to lead Philippine exporters in their digital transformation.
SheTrades PH Hub is a project of the DTI-EMB in partnership with the International Trade Centre (ITC) and Philippine Trade and Investment Centre (PTIC) in Geneva and in collaboration with the DTI Regional Operations Group.
