Enterprises urged to 'refocus business' amid pandemic

TO STAY afloat amid this prevailing coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic, enterprises in Negros Occidental are urged to refocus their businesses.

Frank Carbon, chief executive officer of Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI), said local enterprises should explore a "we order, you deliver" concept.

"If you have not done it yet, try delivery service either from your home or from your store. Connect with various delivery service providers like Grab or Food Panda," he said.

For those with food stocks in their kitchen and freezers, Carbon advised businesses to offer them for sale at a discounted price.

In this way, stocks can be converted to cash.

"Non-earning assets or equipment, on the other hand, can be offered for sale at a bargain price. Others may need them. Convert them to cash," he added.

The business leader further urged businesses to seek assistance on how to use extensively digital selling or social media platforms.

If they need assistance, businesses are urged to visit MBCCI or call the group through 434 3842.
