Trade Chief graces opening of OKB Trade Fair

DTI Secretary Ramon M. Lopez graces the opening of the Orgullo Kan Bikol (OKB) Trade Fair at the Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Mandaluyong City. The trade show is open until May 26, 2019.

OKB is the longest running regional trade fair in the country. OKB goes beyond annual marketing event for Bicol’s fine products and tourism potentials, it also serves as a platform to showcase the region’s pride and heritage, to demonstrate Bicolano resilience, and to present Bicol’s socio-economic potentials in trade, industry, and tourism.

DTI-initiated events like OKB gives MSMEs from different regions greater market access, both in domestic and global, as well as promote and develop MSMEs and their export-ready products.

Featured at the OKB@Shangri-La are 54 exhibitors from Bicol Region, with 16 new entrepreneurs given full marketing assistance by DTI. The fair showcases 175 new products that were results of DTI-V’s product development activities.

DTI is committed to ensure all Filipinos to benefit from inclusive growth as a fulfilment of PRRD’s promise of Tapang at Malasakit.
