As the Philippine government recognizes the increasing importance of e-commerce in the country, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) recently updated its e-commerce roadmap, highlighting speed, security, and infrastructure as the three main pillars to drive industry development, long-term employment, and inclusive growth.

The updated DTI e-commerce roadmap features the key timelines in 2021 that will contribute to the growth that the industry is currently experiencing. It mentions major players in the Philippine e-commerce architecture. It also outlines the integral role that online platforms like Shopee and its mobile wallet, ShopeePay, play in encouraging Filipinos to gradually embrace digital transactions.

“Shopee continues to evolve and grow as a company not only for our consumers but also for our business partners, such as brands and MSMEs. They are integral to our business and we will continue to support them through various initiatives, partnerships, and in-app innovations,” said Martin Yu, director at Shopee Philippines. “As e-commerce continues to grow at an unprecedented pace, we want to equip our partners with the right tools to serve Filipinos with ease.”

Shopee’s goals and initiatives to support brands and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) on their digital journey are in line with DTI’s e-commerce roadmap strategies.

Shopee makes it simpler and easier for brands and MSMEs to adjust to the new DTI e-commerce roadmap with its current ecosystem. With its marketing and logistics tools, mobile features for both sellers and consumers, and digitalization efforts, Shopee gives all its users a smooth online shopping and selling experience.

Shopee also continues to form partnerships with other organizations to offer initiatives to encourage brands and MSMEs to go digital. These include the recent TatakPinoy Virtual Trade Fair, seller masterclasses that offer training to allow MSMEs to on-board easily on the platform, and the launch of new in-app features within Shopee Live, such as co-streaming.

“Shopee is encouraged to see DTI moving swiftly to set the direction of growth for the industry, this helps to ensure that everyone stands to benefit from e-commerce in the long run. As a leading player in the industry, we’ll do our part to support DTI’s efforts and support businesses,” said Yu.
