DTI to hold Independence Day Diskwento Caravan in Bulacan
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga June 11 (PIA) -- Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will hold a Diskwento Caravan from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Malolos City, Bulacan tomorrow, Independence Day.
DTI regional information officer Wilfred Carbonell said the caravan will be held in the premises of the historic Barasoain Church, where President Benigno Aquino III will lead the flag raising and wreath laying rites.
Carbonell said around 20 manufacturers of school supplies, bread, processed meat, detergents, cooking oil, vinegar, canned goods, powdered milk, coffee, shampoo, and bath soap will sell their goods at factory prices.
Fruits and NFA rice as well as products of Bulacan-based Micro, Small and Medium enterprises (MSMEs) will also be sold at discounted prices.
The Diskwento Caravan is a nationwide project by DTI in response to President Aquinoâ€™s 2011 Labor Day pronouncement to ease the financial burden of the people brought by high fuel prices and provide additional or alternative market for manufacturers and producers especially MSMEs.
Caravans that were conducted in Central Luzon last year were able to generate a total sales of more than half a million pesos.(WLB/CLJD-PIA 3)
