Lazada Philippines and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) strengthen their partnership to fuel the resilience and growth of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) across the regions by showcasing even more brands and products during Lazada’s 8.8 Love Local Sale happening from 8-12 August 2021.

Lazada’s 8.8 Love Local Sale will feature a celebration of Philippine cuisine at the Online National Food Fair, showcase Filipino craftsmanship through the official launch of the Lazada Go Lokal! Concept Store, and offer consumers up to 88% off on selected products, additional 10% off on local brands, and free shipping vouchers with no minimum spend nationwide.

“The pandemic brought on an era where e-commerce has become part of the backbone in driving the resilience and growth of businesses, large and small. For us at Lazada, it has always been our core mission to help Filipino businesses go and grow online.

As a result, a big part of what we do has always been to work closely with our industry partners to ensure that we continue to provide opportunities for our MSMEs to digitize their businesses and thrive online,” shares Lazada Philippines chief operating officer Carlos Barrera. “The DTI has been a valuable partner for us in ensuring that we reach and equip even more MSMEs with the tools they need to succeed,” he adds.

“Our MSMEs are the lifeblood of the country and through our strong partnership with Lazada Philippines, we are grateful and excited that even more homegrown entrepreneurs are positioned to be discovered, will have access to a wider market, and provided with better economic opportunities,” shares Director Marievic M. Bonoan of the DTI-Bureau of Domestic Trade Promotion. “More importantly, this exclusive partnership equips local sellers with critical business and marketing skills and tools that are invaluable in today and tomorrow’s economic contexts.”
