PIA Press Release

Kalinga furniture producers seek permit to travel

by Larry Lopez

TABUK, Kalinga (4 April) -- Forty registered furniture producers here are seeking this early permit to travel products from the Municipal Environment & Natural Resources Office (MENRO) in time for the coming regional and national trade fairs.

The move of the Kalinga Association of Furniture Producers came about following the inability of its members to join the last regional and national trade fairs because of failure to secure the necessary permit.

Noryn Bagano of Department of Trade and Industry -Kalinga said this is quite sad when government promotes development of micro-finance enterprises. Only three from the province’s micro-finance business group made it to the last national trade fair at SM Mega Mall last March 14-18.

From previous regional and national trade fares, the sector on furniture usually makes the highest figures in sales, Bagano said.

But we have to comply with existing laws for us to promote micro-finance livelihood projects, she said.

In the last national trade fair, the three exhibitors from the province hauled a total sales of P141,762. The figure could have surely swollen had the sector on furniture was able to join, Bagano said.

The national trade fair organized yearly by the DTI is in line with the government’s agenda of developing micro-finance livelihood projects in the countryside as answer to poverty.

In the province, the Chamber of Kalinga Apayao Producers, Inc. (CKAPI) has just been strengthened, in structure and membership, to make it more responsive to the growing needs of members.

DTI spearheads the provision of technical and even financial assistance to the organization, in close partnership with local government units. (PIA Kalinga) [top]
