LINGAYEN—The province’s producers and manufacturers of quality products will have an opportunity to showcase their goods in California, USA during the Diversity Business Exposition on October 4.
A Technical Working Group (TWG) for Product Development and Export Promotion chaired by Provincial Administrator Rafael F. Baraan was recently formed to assist local producers and manufacturers.
As a preparatory activity for the exposition, the TWG has conducted meetings and discussions with the local producers and invited speakers from the Design Center of the Philippines and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources in Region 1 to help in product development.
Baraan said participation in a foreign trade exposition has long been a dream of local producers and investors for a break into the export market.
Pangasinan’s possible entry in the exposition was coordinated through the Pangasinan Brotherhood-USA Association, Inc. (PB-USA, Inc.), the provincial government’s partner in export promotion and marketing based in Los Angeles, California.
PB-USA, Inc. leaders came to Pangasinan in September last year to hold a Trade-Product Sourcing and Manufacturing Seminar for local producers and manufacturers.
PB-USA president Eddie Ferrer, who hails from Pangasinan, has previously disclosed that several importers have expressed willingness to buy Philippine-made products, particularly those from the province. (PIO)
