PIA Press Release

DTI turns over "OTOP Ko, Orgullo Ko" signages to MSMEs

by BA Recebido

Sorsogon Province (29 July) -- Eight Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) that established One Town, One Product (OTOP) Pasalubong Shops/Stores received the OTOP Signage from the Department of Trade and Industries (DTI) on Thursday, July 22, during the culminating activity of the MSME Development Week celebration.

"As an emblem of OTOP development, we have provided the signage that says "OTOP KO, ORGULLO KO" to our MSMEs who are the true implementers of the OTOP program," says DTI Provincial Director Leah A. Pagao.

Also tagged as 'Mga Bida ng OTOP', the eight MSMEs who received the signages were OTOP Pasalubong Shop c/o Ermino's Handicraft, Tia Berning's Pili Candies and Edgieline's Pasalubong Store, all situated in Rizal St., Sorsogon City; Tony Co Handicraft in Manook St., Gubat, Sorsogon; Barcelona Multi-purpose Cooperative, Inc. (BMPCI) in Poblacion Norte, Barcelona, Sorsogon; Jasternes Handicraft in Brgy. Abas, Pilar, Sorsogon; Eva G. Odono's Pilinut Products in Brgy. San Rafael, Bulusan, Sorsogon and Vicky's Pili and Food Products in Brgy. San Julian, Irosin, Sorsogon.

"Since the signage's primary objective is to promote and drumbeat our province's OTOP products, this should be displayed/hanged in a conspicuous place of the company's establishment/store or in their respective showrooms or in their production area," Pagao said.

She also said that with the four years of OTOP implementation in the province and with the Local Government Units (LGUs) taking the lead in developing various OTOP industries across the province, the program has already stirred and stimulated Sorsogon's OTOP MSMEs.

"The convergence efforts of LGAs, NGAs and other non-government organizations and the MSMEs themselves have substantially improved our MSMEs competitiveness. This inspires the DTI to continuously provide developmental activities such as product development, training, marketing, access to financing and business consultancy to the Sorsoganons who would like to venture in the enterprising industry," she elaborated.

With the assistance that the DTI is extending to the MSMEs, Pagao expresses high hopes that more and more Sorsoganons will be encouraged to enter into business enterprise in order to contribute in the economic development in the countryside. (PIA Sorsogon) [top]
