The Philippines. HRM Asia (20 April, 2022) - The ASEAN SME Academy 2.0 platform provides training and mentorship to MSMEs by featuring localised courses on topics of interest.

Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the Philippines can take advantage of the upgraded version of an online learning platform to build digital skills and keep their businesses afloat amid the pandemic. 

Called the ASEAN SME Academy 2.0, the platform is a one-stop shop multi-platform online training and information resource that aims to provide training and mentorship to enhance MSMEs’ capability to grow and compete regionally and internationally.

It features localised courses on topics of interest to MSMEs, with multi-language support,  and a breadth of online and self-certification resources. 

“The post-pandemic future demands MSMEs to adapt to the new normal of doing business, highlighting the need to adopt new technologies and capture opportunities in the digital economy,” said Philippines Trade Undersecretary Rafaelita Aldaba, according to The Manila Times.

The platform can also help facilitate the digital transformation of MSMEs and accelerate a broader economic recovery to achieve a more inclusive and sustainable post-pandemic future in Southeast Asia, said Aldaba. 

The platform was first launched by the US-ASEAN Business Council, the US Agency for International Development, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations last April.
