Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program – (SET-UP) is a nationwide strategy to encourage and assist micro, small, medium enterprises to adopt technological innovations to improve their operations and boost productivity and competitiveness, explains Regional Director and Engr.

Such is to improve productivity through better product quality, human resource development, cost minimization, waste management and other activities related to production, added Engr Llanto.
