Some 200 students and faculty members of Tarlac Agricultural University (TAU) took part in a seminar on e-commerce organized by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) as part of the agency’s Youth Entrepreneurship Program (YEP).
According to DTI Tarlac Senior Trade-Industry Specialist Ana Marie Tabamo, YEP aims to address the young demographics to become productive individuals through entrepreneurship by means of comprehensive package interventions.
“We are all familiar with the statement, ‘start them young,’ It is very important to hone these student entrepreneurs while they are still young and eager to learn,” Tabamo said in a Philippine Information Agency report.
YEP with its tagline “HOORAY” which stands for Harnessing Our Own Resources for the Advancement of the Youth, is a public-private partnership directed towards assisting youth in realizing their full potential to becoming successful entrepreneurs.
DTI will assist aspirants from creation to development of their businesses through their services, officials said.
