Launching SMEs into international market -- Feature on Inquirer.Net
EVEN in the fiercely competitive world market, small- and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs) do have a chance-given the right tools and approaches, according to a Singaporean firm.
Best business practices that have propelled many modest Singapore operations to the world market are now available to local ventures seeking to be globally competitive, according to Romulo Romero, managing director of the Philippine operations of OTi Consulting.
OTi is a regional managing consultancy firm based in Singapore and doing business in Indonesia, Malaysia, China, the Philippines, and Afghanistan. It is one of the certified consulting firms in the city-state actively participating in a successful government-sponsored initiative to strengthen SMEs, the backbone of Singapore's vibrant economy.
The Industry Capability Upgrading Program provides companies organized by industry with a framework for collectively assessing emerging trends and challenges in the global market; determining gaps that need to be addressed to enhance their competitiveness; envisioning the future; and planning for it.
The program is anchored on the fact that few companies in the world today produce all its goods and services, according to Romero.
Different parts are produced by different companies in various areas of the world.
"Competition has become international and unprecedented in intensity. Companies can no longer single-handedly create the future for themselves and their people. They need to work with other companies to jointly develop strategies for bringing their organizations and people forward to ride the competition and scale new heights," he says.
In the Philippines, SMEs make up 99.6 percent of all Philippine firms, providing 32 percent of value-added and 70 percent of all jobs. In foreign trade, they account for about 60 percent of all exporters.
Romero believes nurturing SMEs can generate more jobs and stimulate a more even distribution of wealth.
Most SMEs don't graduate to the next levels of development, he said.
One reason is that assistance from government and other agencies has largely been focused on credit.
In addition, best business practices are not shared. Growth and expansion are anchored on capital buildup and asset expansion while the health of the organization remains largely ignored, according to Romero.
