Local products made by Fernandinos are now showcased at the Glorietta Activity Center, Ayala Center in Makati City as part of the Likha ng Central Luzon Trade Fair 2016.
This annual activity, organized by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Central Luzon and Philexport Central Luzon, aims to promote products of the region.
It is fully supported by the Regional Development Council and the Central Luzon Growth Corridor Foundation Inc.
Jeffrey Yutuc, Project Development Officer of the City Investment Promotion Center, said more than 10 micro enterprises from the city joined this year’s trade fair.
“Products exhibited include our very own lanterns, delectable delicacies and pastries, handicrafts and woodcrafts made of yantok, to name a few,” Yutuc said.
He noted that these entrepreneurs were first trained under the Negosyo Center and were assisted in branding their products using the labeling facility of the city.
For his part, Mayor Edwin ‘EdSa’ Santiago said the trade fair serves as an avenue not only for Fernandino entrepreneurs to earn, but more importantly, to expose their quality products to a larger scale of consumers.
“Tunay na maipagmamalaki ang mga produktong gawa ng mga Fernandino hindi lamang sa Pilipinas kundi maging sa buong mundo,” Santiago added.
The city government also encourages everyone to visit the Negosyo and Pasalubong Center located at the former DFA building along Jose Abad Santos Avenue to see similar products showcase in the trade fair.
Aside from Pampanga, Likha Central Luzon also features products from the provinces of Aurora, Bataan, Tarlac, Bulacan, Zambales and Nueva Ecija.
The Trade Fair will be until October 13.
