Recognizing the vital contribution of female entrepreneurs in the economy, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), in partnership with UnionBank GlobalLinker, is organizing Gawang-Pinay Online Trade Fair, the first online trade fair for women-led enterprises, which runs from August 24 – September 2, 2020.

Gawang-Pinay aims to provide market opportunities for products made by women-owned and/or managed enterprises, or those that have predominantly women employees. It features around 70 women-led MSMEs (micro, small, and medium enterprises) from different regions of the country.

Products on sale include the following:

  • Processed food and beverages
  • Gifts and souvenirs
  • Houseware and décor
  • Fashion accessories
  • Wearables
  • Specialty/heirloom food
  • Health and wellness products.


“We are proud to showcase products produced by women entrepreneurs who braved the market place with their outstanding wares and contribute to the country’s economic development,” DTI Secretary Ramon M. Lopez said.


Moreover, Secretary Lopez encouraged buyers to source their needs through this marketplace especially now that limited mobility and social distancing are enforced in the country.

“These products have undergone transformation through the various DTI assistance and we are sure that buyers will find these quality products worth owning or using.”


The campaign is one of DTI’s efforts under its Gender and Development Program, recognizing the crucial role that women play in a healthy and growing economy. As a completely online trade fair, it is also a way of supporting local enterprises amidst the unique challenges of our time.
