The Department of Trade and Industry Region IV-A will execute its 5th KALAKAL CALABARZON on 12-21 October 2018 at the Festival Supermall, Alabang, Muntinlupa. For this year, the region will feature the products of seventy-five (75) homegrown Micro, Small, Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) assisted under the OTOP Next Gen (ONG) Program from the provinces of Laguna, Quezon, Rizal, Batangas and Cavite. These homegrown MSMEs are the beneficiaries of product development, one of the primary interventions under OTOP-ONG, which enables them to improve and enhance the quality, designs, and marketability of their products. The fair will focus on showcasing and highlighting the newly-developed products of the participating MSMEs.
“For this year’s KALAKAL, we are very excited to introduce our upgraded and innovative products as we envision our micro, small, and medium enterprises to go global. We have so many things in store for our buyers,” said DTI CALABARZON Director Marilou Q. Toledo.
KALAKAL CALABARZON is an annual event organized by the DTI IV-A in cooperation with the provincial offices. The fair is considered as an appropriate venue for the CALABARZON homegrown MSMES to strengthen the linkages among the various players in the regional economic development by providing an accessible venue for promotion of all the products and services, to continue to find opportunities in expanding the market of new/existing products, and to create, sustain, and strengthen the network and linkages not only with the government stakeholders but also with other private entities.
Let us support our homegrown entrepreneurs and together CHAMPION LOKAL!
