Butuan City (6 August) -- A sale on "over-runs" and promotional products at discounted prices are some of the "come-ons" during the market-type trade fair dubbed as SME "Market, Market" Week 2008.
Producers, selected distributors and merchandisers of consumer goods will sell their products at discounted prices. Enterprising government employee cooperatives and associations are also invited to join this week-long trading activity.
Simultaneous to the fair are the mounting of agency and techno exhibits and the conduct of job fair, briefings and seminars. The SME Market Market Week 2008 runs from July 29 to August 2 at the grounds and convention hall of Luciana Convention Center, Butuan City.
