Convergence eyed for DTI-led "Negoso Serbisyo sa Barangay"
by Susan C. Aro / PIA

Convergence among concerned agencies is being looked into as a scheme to foster the Department of Trade and Industry-led Negosyo Serbisyo sa Barangay (NSB) among existing and potential micro, small, and medium entrepreneurs (MSMEs) in poverty-stricken barangays.

The NSB aims to bring government closer to small businesses in the 4th to 6th class municipalities and boost assistance through the establishment of barangay help desks for countryside businesses to flourish.

It intends to maximize the entrepreneurs’ potential until they can stand on their own. 

The DTI has identified 140 priority barangays for the program from among the 45 municipalities belonging to 4th to 6th class regionwide from 2019 to 2022.

The agency is expected to create and develop 700 enterprises in the identified priority barangays.

The idea of convergence of agency efforts was brought up in a recent meeting of the Economic Development Sectoral Committee of the Regional Development Council-Cordillera.

Considering that some agencies have their respective programs on entrepreneurial support and development, it would be best to harmonize initiatives and be looped into said program to avoid duplication.

The departments of Science and Technology, Agriculture, and Tourism including the two newly attached agencies under DTI supervision, the Cooperative Development Authority and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority are among the agencies with community-based programs for entrepreneurs. 

DTI-Cordillera Director Myrna Pablo suggested that concerned agencies meet and come up with inventory of MSME community-based projects.

These will be looped in to complement but not to duplicate what one agency is doing and further strengthen programs intended for the entrepreneurs.

The NSB will be rolled out in the region this month.

Pablo said the priority barangays for the NSB were evaluated based on inaccessibility, poor delivery of services, potential to have MSMEs in the area, and absence of issues on peace and order, among other factors.
