Three Community Partners Join Exporters Fair

Hand bags made of native fibers and  Kalinga handwoven native attire are among the products proudly displayed by  CCT community partners at the 23rd Buy Pinoy Exporters Fair being held at  SM Megamall. The fair started August 16  and will end on Sunday, August 19. 

Pastor Bien Manglo of Laguna, distributor of bags made of sweet screwpine (known locally as wild pandan), said he joined the fair  because of the potential for gaining contacts and  learning (such as on price competitiveness),  exposure as a businessman, and the chance to compare his products with those of other businessmen. 

Rose Eroles, maker of buri and pandan bags, hats, wallets and mats, and Nancy Bal-iwang, who hand weaves and sells  items such as Kalinga native dress and  table runners also expect similar benefits.  Visit them at Booth 22 and Booth 108  at the Megatrade Hall 2, 5th level Mega B.
