The moratorium for payment of refund is extended for the beneficiaries of the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP). The extension will be for additional three (3) months from May-July 2020 given the extension of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).

This extension is our way of helping our micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to cope up with the losses they have incurred, and continue to incur, during this pandemic health crisis.

SETUP is a flagship program and nationwide strategy of the DOST that aims to assist MSMEs through adoption of technology innovations to improve their operations and boost their productivity and competitiveness.
