The Department of Trade and Industry-Export Marketing Bureau (DTI-EMB) is set to stage its first-ever Export Enablers’ Exhibit (3Es) on 03 to 04 December as part of its celebration of the National Exporters’ Week (NEW).  The 3Es, formerly known as Commodity Agencies Exhibit, has been conducted for several years, with the 3Es branding having been adapted for 2 years now starting at the National Export Congress (NEC) in 2018. 

The exhibit aims to showcase export-related services of national government agencies, financing institutions, startups, and other export trade-related organizations. In keeping with the NEW’s theme, Digitalization Boost: Invigorating Exports in the New Normal, the exhibit will have a virtual experience which will be completely accessible using the web.

The virtual booths will provide a venue where exporters can consult exhibitors to obtain requisite export knowledge and professional guidance necessary in their export business. Serving as an interactive online helpdesk, the virtual exhibit will also offer an opportunity for visitors to chat or call the exhibitors in real-time, leave a message, or initiate an email inquiry.

Confirmed exhibitors from national government agencies include: the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL), Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA), DTI-Bureau of Import Services (BIS), DTI-EMB and its Halal Section, DTI-Strategic Trade Management Office (STMO), Foreign Trade Service Corps (FTSC), Center for International Trade Expositions & Missions (CITEM), the Philippine Trade Training Center (PTTC), and Bureau of Customs (BoC).

On the other hand, private sector organizations and startups such as 1EXPORT, the World Trade Center (WTC) / Manila Exposition Complex, Inc., Cropital Corporation, ECFULFILL, FedEx Philippines, Control Union of the Phlippines, the Philippine Exporters Confederation, Inc. (PHILEXPORT), and Vesl Philippines, Inc. are also expected to showcase their virtual booths.
