Aside from these regional activities, the different DTI Provincial Offices will also be conducting other activities in their respective provinces. These include Business Opportunities Fair, Business Trainings and Seminars, Business fora, Advocacy Forum on the Local and Regional Economic Development Program, Provincial OTOP Summit, Provincial OTOP Fair and Product Launchings.
