DTI urges local producers to join furniture, apparel show

Bacolod City (16 February) -- Officials of the Center for International Trade and Expositions and Missions (CITEM), an attached agency of the DTI, recently met with members of the Associated Negros Producers to urge them to join the Furniture, Apparel Marketing Exposition (FAME) in Manila on April 15-18.

CITEM OIC for Consumer Business Joao Miranda and CITEM Executive Director Thelma Murillo talked to about 50 participants who attended the activity and explained to them the advantages of joining the FAME.

Speakers said the Fame provides their products the appropriate venue by which the entire world can take notice of their products and boost their business growth.

She told PIA FAME will give opportunity to local enterprise engaged in gifts and house wares to showcase their products for possible orders from foreign buyers who will be coming over during the exposition in April.

"If they come back to Bacolod and have orders, of course, it will generate employment and more dollars would come in."

Some local ANP products that received orders during the recent expositions are lamination products, basketries and furniture sets.

The recent show attracted about a thousand foreign buyers. "Orders would depend on the competitiveness of our exporters," Buaron said.

President Gloria M. Arroyo considers the Small Medium Enterprises (SME) and other players engaged in furniture manufacturing and other arts as one of the backbones of the country's economy and has provide it millions of fund for development. (PIA-LOL) [top]
