In a bid to help micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), the Quezon City government on Friday partnered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Bigyang-Halaga, Bangon, Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (BBMSME) program.

Mayor Joy Belmonte and  FDA director general Samuel Zacate signed a memorandum of agreement for the BBMSME program designed to provide technical assistance and training on regulatory compliance, product registration and other relevant topics for MSMEs.

The collaboration also aims to streamline the registration process, making it easier and more accessible for them to comply with FDA regulations. Rio N. Araja

“We recognize the value of our MSMEs and their contribution to the local economy. This partnership will propel them forward as they seek the important certification from FDA to confirm the safety, efficacy, and quality of their food and cosmetic products,” Belmonte said.

“Through our partnership with the local government of Quezon City, we aim to provide MSMEs with the resources they need to succeed. This includes access to training, technical assistance, and support in complying with regulatory requirements,” Zacate said.

Both officials agreed that by supporting MSMEs would help create employment, boost productivity and improve the quality of life for all citizens.

The MOA is consistent with the guidelines established by Republic Act 9501 or An Act to Promote Entrepreneurship by Strengthening Development and Assistance Programs to Micro, Small and Medium Scale Enterprises, amending for the Purpose RA 6977, as amended or the Magna
 Carta for Small Scale Enterprises and for Other Purposes.

The  program would be under the city government’s initiative to aid micro and small enterprises in securing necessary documents and licenses.

The local government through the Small Business and Cooperatives Development and Promotions Office would soon launch the Q-Certified program to provide assistance to MSMEs for certification by and registration in government agencies.
