Section 16 of Republic Act No. 9501, also known as the Magna Carta for MSMEs, declares the second week of July of each year as MSME Development Week (MSMED Week) with the primary purpose of instituting awareness of the primacy of MSMEs in nation-building.

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), as the Chair of the MSME Development Council, will celebrate this year’s MSMED Week on 08-14 July 2024 with the overarching theme, “Innovate to Elevate MSMEs” to underscore the pivotal role of innovation and digitalization in empowering MSMEs in today’s competitive business landscape. The week-long activities will be simultaneously conducted nationwide by the members of the MSMED Council and DTI offices. This will include trade fairs and exhibits showcasing MSME products, free entrepreneurship seminars, and mentoring sessions to further strengthen the capacity of the MSMEs.
