LGU, DTI set ‘Rambakan’ trade fair in Ifugao town
LAMUT, Ifugao – The local government unit and the Department of Trade and Industry-Negosyo Center initiated the “2023 Rambakan Trade Fair” as part of the town’s festivities.
With the theme “Umuna latta ti Lamut iti panagkaykaysa ken balligi,” the trade fair opened to the public on March 17 and will end on April 10.
Furniture, wearables, handicrafts, processed foods, and snacks are available at the display stalls established near the municipal government’s compound and at the Tourism Village.
Executive Assistant Brenda Sawad who represented Mayor Victomar Bunnol said the event is an additional input to the economic activity and progress of the municipality as she enjoined the residents to patronize the products of the town and its neighboring municipalities.
“Congratulations to our private business partners for your efforts. Together, we will reach beyond greater heights if we will work hand in hand,” Sawad said.
DTI-Ifugao Director Engr. Francis Pacio thanked the micro, small, and medium enterprises for participating in the event and their role in uplifting the economy of the province.
“This trade fair is one aspect of helping the business sector so they can market their products and meet prospect buyers. We need one another towards our recovery. The MSMEs are the movers of the economy; they must be supported so that the gains will revert back through employment, sales and among others,” Pacio said. – Marcelo B. Lihgawon
