Barangay Micro Business Enterprises
(BMBEs) will be given another close study during the 2nd BMBE Conference to be hosted by the Cagayan de Oro Chamber
of Commerce and Industry Foundation, Inc.
(Oro Chamber) this coming May 3 at the Pearlmont Inn.
A highlight of the biennial conference is the midterm report of the Oro Chamber's
Creating Opportunities and Resource Management for Enterprises (CORE) Project, highlighting it as the local chamber's delivery mechanism for the Promoting Regional Opportunities for Enterprise and Livelihood (Propel) Development Program of Sen.
Propel has released a P1-million fund to finance Oro Chamber's
Core project for BMBEs
including good business forums and focused group discussions, short-term trainings, and promotional and technical assistance to the coco sugar industry in Balingasag, Misamis Oriental.
..."The Department of Finance can come out with guidelines which are contrary to the spirit of BMBEs," noted Arsenio L. Sebastian III, Oro Chamber chairman of the BMBE & SME affairs committee.
