They are the lifeblood of the economy, and they contribute greatly to delivering products and services to everyone including you and me. But they’re not just businesses; they’re our friends, our daily companions in this world of
commerce. They tirelessly deliver products and services, making a significant impact on all our lives.” Furthermore, Locsin recognized the hard work and dedication of Channel Partners in supporting the digitalization efforts for SMEs. During the event, he expressed his gratitude and optimism pointing out that, “In PLDT Enterprise, our commitment to SMEs is more than just a mission statement; it’s a promise to empower and ensure that these
