By raising government efficiency and effectiveness in providing assistance to small and medium enterprises throughout the country, at the least cost; h. By promoting linkages between large and small enterprises, and by encouraging the establishment of common service facilities; i. By making the private sector a partner in the task of building up small and medium enterprises through the promotion and participation of private voluntary organizations, viable industry associations, and cooperatives; j. And by assuring a balanced and sustainable development through the establishment of a feedback and evaluation mechanism that will monitor the economic contributions as well as bottlenecks and environmental effects to the development of small and medium scale enterprises. Economic Impact of SMEs Over the years, SMEs have showed notable effect to the Philippine economy. According to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI, 2004), the SMEs comprise 99.6% of all the registered business enterprises all over the country, they have contributed 32% to the total Gross Domestic Product; and generated 70% of the total employment in the country (Figure 2. DTI (2004): Size of SMEs). Though SMEs' value added is 32% to the overall production of the country, it is still 47% lower compared to the value added of the registered large enterprises that only comprise .04% of the total registered businesses in the entire country, the weightier side of the economic scale however, favors employment (Figure 3. DTI (2004): Employment and Value Added of SMEs). In comparison with the other Asian countries, except for value added production, the Philippines ranks third in terms of SME establishments and ranks fourth in terms of employment (Figure 4: (DTI 2004): Philippine SME Ranking With Other Countries).

Of course, there are other serious problems to consider like birth control and rapid population growth, but at least these students are doing something rather than nothing. Wise men say: "if you are not part of the solution, then you are probably part of the problem". Figures Figure 1.
