DAVAO DEL NORTE -- The richness of its fertile land, ingenuity of its people, and the vibrancy of the culture of this province are proudly on display at the new DavNor Pasalubong Shop.

Committed to provide maximum market exposure to its local producers, the Provincial Government set up a spanking permanent home for its official souvenir and gift buying station.

Strategically-located at the northeast corner of the Davao del Norte Sports and Tourism Complex in Mankilam, Tagum City, the new provincial one-stop gift shop all the same offers indigenous handicrafts, souvenir items, fashion accessories, processed foods, home decorations and the likes.

Governor Rodolfo del Rosario spearheaded the inauguration of the new "pasalubong" shop last week amid pomp and impressive fire dance and choral presentations.

The governor said the facility stands as an instrument of hope and abundance, not only to the entrepreneurs of the province, but to all the Dabaonons, as well.

He also asked his constituents to beat the holiday rush by patronizing the store for their Christmas gifts.

The launch event was part of the opening salvo of the weeklong institutional Christmas celebration of the province, dubbed as "Pasko Fiyesta sa Kapitolyo."

Del Rosario also led the lighting of the traditional Christmas Tree of the Capitol, which, according to him, symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the true reason for the Yuletide season.

Assisting the governor were Department of Trade and Industry (DTI 11) director Belinda Ambi, Bishop Wilfredo Manlapaz, Vice Gov. Victorio Suaybaguio and members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, among other guests.
