Role of the SMEs
SMEs play a major role in the country’s economic development as they contribute to the creation of business opportunities, generation of employment, and linkages to existing industries both here and abroad.

As of 2009, small and medium enterprises comprise 99.6 percent of the almost 80,000 business enterprises operating in the Philippines, according to data by the Department of Trade and Industry.

Sixty-three percent of the labor force earns their living through SMEs. While most of the jobs generated by the sector can be found in the National Capital Region, SMEs also propel employment in rural areas especially in economic zones spread around the country.
