The Department of Trade and Industry Region 1 in partnership with local manufacturers, distributors and retailers launched anew the Balik Eskwela Diskwento Caravan 2017 at different areas in the region. 

The annual Balik Eskwela- Diskwento Caravan aims to provide an opportunity for consumers to access basic goods, school supplies and prime commodities at discounted prices that ranges from 10 to 50% off.

DTI ensures that aside from getting the best value for their money, consumers are assured of quality products as participating establishments are all standards compliant.

DTI Region 1 encouraged the parents to take advantage of the Diskwento Caravans that would run for few days to one month in some areas as this would help them stretch their budget in preparation for the coming new school year.

Meanwhile, the agency also advised the buying public to be aware of the Suggested Retail Price for School Supplies. The SRP is the consumers’ guide to avoid buying unscrupulous and overpriced products. For any query or complaints, consumers may report it at the nearest DTI Office.
