DTI-7 targets P40M sales for Sandugo trade expo
CEBU CITY — The Department of Trade and Industry in Central Visayas (DTI-7) expects to generate P40 million sales at the upcoming Sandugo Trade Expo to be held next week in Tagbilaran City.
Regional Director Aster Caberte said last year’s expo generated P33 million sales for 170 exhibitors.
Around 200 exhibitors from Visayas, Mindanao and Luzon would participate in the event to be held from July 24-28 at the Island City Mall, Caberte said.
The exhibitors will include beneficiaries of the One Town One Product (OTOP) and Kapatid Mentor Micro Entrepreneurs (KMME) programs of DTI.
The OTOP program provides assistance to champion products using indigenous raw materials and local skills and talents in each town.
On the other hand, KMME program aims to advance micro, small and medium enterprises and improve their ability to become more competitive.
