A Push For Digitization: Shopee Partners with Cebu LGUs and MSMEs

Driven by its mission to make e-commerce for everyone, Shopee partners with Cebu’s Local Government Units to help micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the region for its second leg of the Shopee University Roadshow and Shopee Kumustahan. These two events educate MSMEs on how to take their businesses online and kickstart their venture into e-commerce.

The roadshow event held at Bai Hotel, Cebu, was graced by Cebu’s Local Government officials and Shopee executives and staff, along with over a hundred of local sellers in the region. Shopee has partnered with the cities of Cebu, Mandaue, Talisay, and Lapu-Lapu, aiming to reach more Filipinos across the Philippines and to make the online selling and shopping experience more easy, convenient, and seamless for everyone.

As part of its efforts to push this forward, Shopee has also established more Shopee Xpress hubs within the region to expand its serviceable areas and provide local sellers with opportunities to reach more buyers nationwide.

Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines, said “We are grateful for our partnership with Mandaue City, Lapu-Lapu City, Talisay City, and Cebu City that has enabled us to reach even more MSMEs across the Philippines. Through more partnerships and hub expansions, we will continue to help digitize even more Cebuano MSMEs through more iterations of the Shopee University Roadshow and Shopee Kumustahan. We are committed to supporting local MSMEs as they bring their businesses online, wherever they may be.”
