There are around 30 Million E-commerce users in the Philippines, only less than one (1%) are formally registered, while the rest are on underground operations. The organization aims to encourage all players to take part in nation- building by registering their business to the government. While this may be a challenge, at least adding companies will increase the number of companies who are willing to support the government. To be able to do this, ECom Thrive Founders, Nani Razon, Raffy Canare and Charlie Gengos are closely working with the government in establishing a business- friendly environment to the stakeholders. President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. during his recent SONA takes confidence in a stronger E-Commerce industry as its roadmap was firmly in place to ensure that the government will deliver a robust economy driven by active digitalization of both the commercial sector, the government and the consumers. This statement provides a better future for the Filipinos to fully embrace technology and e-commerce. According to Nani Razon, the Marcos administration provided a business- friendly environment to stakeholders that eventually would materialize our growth projection of at least 12% to 15% by end of 2023. Raffy Canare, ECom Thrive founder optimistically agreed that while our stakeholders are doubling its effort to produce sales, we can feel how the government is making it a good playground for the stakeholders and making it inclusive from home-based online sellers to large scale digital commerce traders. In fact, through the advancement of technology, Filipinos doing online selling not just locally but internationally is growing. Our local brands will be given more opportunities to put their brand available in the US, Canada, Europe and all first world countries, Charlie Gengos, co- founder of ECom Thrive added.
The recent sealing of partnership of Ecom Thrive Asia with CTO Network Vietnam will fuel and advance the capacity of our stakeholders by integrating new applications that will efficiently optimize marketing and sales strategies of their company members.
