DTI calls on Central Luzon youth to become entrepreneurs
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is urging Central Luzon youth to start engaging in business while they are still young.
At the launch of the Youth Entrepreneurship Program (YEP), DTI OIC-Regional Director Leonila Baluyut called on the youth to take advantage of using the innovations and technology of the present to pursue the entrepreneurial path, according to a Philippine Information Agency report.
“Digitalization accelerated during this pandemic and further changed the world of work and the way we interact,” she was quoted as saying.
“Young people are at the heart of this technological movement, being the most active online users. Taken into entrepreneurship, you are the most capable of using the internet of things to your advantage. Make the most out of it,” Baluyut said.
The DTI official said the DTI and its development partners would provide support in this endeavor.
“We, as part of the government, are here to support you. We are here as your enabler to your full potential,” Baluyut said in the report.
“To make that happen, we will mentor and coach you to be the best version of yourself as an entrepreneur. And one of the best ways to prepare yourself for this journey is to put your mind into it,” she added.
