PIA Press Release

JAGS-CT trade will not give undue competition to businesses

Alabel Sarangani (16 October) -- Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Sarangani Provincial Director Engineer Nenita Barroso assured that businesses of SOCSKSARGEN (South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani Province, and General Santos City) will not be affected by the Jose Abad Santos-Glan-Sarangani Cooperative Triangle (JAGS-CT) trade mission to North Sulawesi, Republic of Indonesia.

During the JAGS-CT Press Conference recently held in Glan, Sarangani Province, Barroso said that JAGS-CT – RP trading will not affect investors from nearby provinces. She added that products from Indonesia are thoroughly monitored by DTI including the Bureau of Customs, Immigration, Quarantine, and Security (CIQS) officials to determine if the imported materials are in line with the list of allowable and disallowable products.

Sarangani Governor Miguel Rene Dominguez said that this is the right time to change the parochial economic systems of the government, for the welfare of the public to buy affordable materials and commodities.

“Our economy is under protectionism policy. We protect the investors, but we forget to protect the consuming public that gives life to the business,” Dominguez said.

JAG-CT delegates completed the two days business matching discussion in Indonesia including the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Municipality of Glan and the city of Bitung for the establishment of a sister City-Municipality cooperation.

Products for negotiations from JAGS-CT to Bitung Indonesia are beauty soap and cosmetics, Coca-cola products, mango planting materials and other fruit seeds, construction materials (cement and paint), cigarettes, bananas, alcoholic beverages for consumption in hotels, restaurants, pubs and other places designated by the local government, construction materials (tiles and roofs), virgin coconut oil (VCO), essential oil, tuna, wood moldings, wooden (knock-down) houses, yellow corn, copra, furniture, souvenirs, handicrafts and charcoal.
