PIA Press Release

EAGA Trade Expo set August 5-9

Davao City (27 July) -- Various products of Mindanao and Palawan shall take center stage as these will be brought to Brunei Darussalam for the Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA) Trade Expo 2009 on August 5 to 9.

Romeo L. Castaņaga, central secretariat of the Small and Medium Enterprise Development (SMED) Cluster of the BIMP-EAGA and chief of the Management Support and Special Concerns Division (MSSCD) of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) 11, said Davao Region's products ranging from processed food to gifts, toys, and house wares (GTH) will be consolidated and transported to the exposition venue by Mae Alcantara, owner of Crystal Seas Hand-woven and Hand-crafted Products based in Davao City.

The Philippine exhibitors will also promote the bayong and other products under the One Town One Product (OTOP) program.

"Each region is only given one slot in the trade expo, that's why, Ms. Alcantara, being the official participant to the event, offered to consolidate the products and bring them along with her own creations. With such, more local products will be given the chance to widen market reach," Castaņaga said.

Castaņaga added that with the participation of the trading partners from China, Japan, and Northern Territory (Darwin), there's no doubt that the local MSMEs will find new business opportunities especially that their products are world-class.

Secretary Jesus G. Dureza, BIMP-EAGA Philippine Signing Minister, and Trade Undersecretary for Regional Operations and Development Group Merly M. Cruz, Philippine Senior Official, will head the Philippine Delegation.

The BIMP-EAGA Trade Expo is among the events during the 18th Senior Officials' Meeting/14th Ministerial Meeting (SOM/MM).

Generally, the 18th SOM/14th MM is expected to gather key officials and stakeholders from both the government and private sector of the member-countries to discuss issues relative to the sub-regional cooperation, particularly the progress in the implementation of flagship programs and projects.

Aside from the trade expo, other events will be the SOM with Development Partners on August 6 and BIMP-EAGA Business Conference on August 6 to 7. (PIA) [top]
