Trade fair showcases local products from resilient entrepreneurs

THE Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)-Eastern Visayas will conduct its Post-Yolanda and Pre-Christmas Bahandi Eastern Visayas Trade Fair on November 25-29 at the Robinsons North, Tacloban City.

This year's theme, “Unity in Resilience,” proves the resilience and growth of 76 producer-exhibitors, six years after the Super Typhoon Yolanda devastation. This will be shown through the improved packaging and labeling, and sophisticated designs of the products, visual merchandising skills and how these micro and small entrepreneurs (MSEs) professionally developed with their interaction to buyers.

The trade fair will showcase results from the efforts of the Rural Agro Enterprise Partnership for Inclusive Development and Growth (Rapid Growth) Project, which prioritizes broadening market access of MSEs who have agri-based products under the priority industries of cacao, coffee, jackfruit, coconut and pili.

The fair also welcomes tourists, balikbayans, and local customers who will shop for their pre-Christmas needs and gifts.

The trade fair is expected to generate P2 million total sales for the micro and small entrepreneurs. (PR)
