Posted by Yel Cobile, IT Admin & Correspondent on July 22, 2012, 7:25 am

(By GMANetwork, 22 July 2012)

Overseas Filipino workers in France benefited from a recent seminar on business and investment opportunities organized by the Philippine Trade and Investment Center and the Philippine Embassy there.

The seminar on "Business and Investment Opportunities in the Philippines for Overseas Filipinos - Migrante, Maging Negosyante" was held at the embassy last month, the Department of Foreign Affairs said.

A news release of the DFA said the topics tackled by the presentations were:
 
- rewards and risks of entrepreneurship
 - the process flow in starting a small enterprise
 - determining product lines/service lines and financial requirements
 - choosing the right business types
 - types of business according to ownership
 - writing a business plan
 - seeking sources of capital
 - registering the business

The seminar sought to provide OFWs with useful insights on sustainable investments for themselves and their families and beneficiaries back home.

Philippine Ambassador to France Cristina Ortega, in her opening remarks, stressed the importance of OFW remittances' contribution to the Philippine economy.

Ortega encouraged Filipinos in Paris to continue taking part in the economic development of the country by putting their remittances to good use through wise and productive investments.

Director and Commercial Attaché Althea Antonio made a presentation on "How to Start a Business" and "Business Climate and Opportunities for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises or MSMEs."

The presentations were part of the financial literacy program of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to transform "overseas Filipinos (OFs)" into "overseas Filipinos investors (OFIs)."

Antonio also underscored the OFW Reintegration Program co-funded by the Landbank of the Philippines and the Development Bank of the Philippines. --- LBG, GMA News
