The business world is constantly evolving and growing with the changing needs of clients and customers, as well as adapting to shifts and disruptions in the wider environment in which it operates.

The challenge for organizations is to direct their efforts and investments to areas that have the potential to get the most long-term value, simultaneously avoiding areas that might be a short-term reaction to the pandemic. The technology offerings currently available to businesses are continuously improving and becoming more sophisticated, and it is in every organization’s best interest to look at these advancements strategically and leverage them to enable their business to grow sustainably and on a larger scale.

In a 2022 article, the Asian Development Bank’s ADB Philippines Country Director Kelly Bird described the situation as follows: “Nearly all indicators point to higher growth for the Philippines this year and in 2023, barring the impact of external factors from geopolitical tensions that may dampen growth globally, including in the country’s key export markets of Europe and the United States. Policies to build the resilience of micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), which play a vital role in the country’s economic recovery, should be strengthened to support the sector’s digital transformation, business innovation, and skills development.”
