Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) form the lifeblood of the Philippine economy through the stimulation of economic activity. SM, as a staunch supporter of MSME growth, recognizes that disaster resilient MSMEs are the key to a sustainable value chain and in attaining business continuity.
“Empowering supply chains is particularly close to our hearts because SM’s roots were borne from our father’s entrepreneurial spirit,” relates Mr. Hans T. Sy, SM Prime Holdings Inc. Chairman of the Executive Committee and SM Investments Corporation Adviser at the United Nations Global Compact- Global Reporting Initiative regional sustainability summit held on August 20, 2019 at the Conrad Manila.
“It is because of this that we understand the journey and challenges faced by small and medium enterprises. We want to help them not only by providing a strong market but by building their resilience to overcome their risks and maximize their opportunities,” Mr. Sy added.
