TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, July 29, 2012 (PIA) In a re-invigorated push to perk up Micro, Small and medium enterprises (MSME) which have been largely credited for breathing life to local economies, the government has showcased anew, a set-up that helps MSMES increase local production and a more appealing ground to compete in the global market. 

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. Rene Burt Llanto of the local Department of Science and Technology (DOST). 

At the Kapihan sa PIA with Awarding Ceremonies and distribution of grants, the DOST, the government’s premier science and technology research agency revealed a set up that enables business firms to address technological problems through technology transfer and technological intervention, DOST Bohol Field Manager Marcial Tanggaan said. 

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.

Linkaging and networking is by raw materials sourcing, marketing, technical entrepreneurial, financing, and equipment design and fabrication
