Camarines Sur chamber of commerce inks deal with Bishop Francisco Gainza Trade Fair 2022 organizers

NAGA CITY, Camarines Sur (PIA)—The Camarines Sur Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CSCCI) Inc. under the stewardship of President Maria Emma F. Llorin has decided to embark on a partnership with the Archdiocese of Caceres in the upcoming Bishop Francisco Gainza Trade Fair 2022.

“One of the major goals of The Camsur Chamber of Commerce and Industry is to be of service, especially to the business sector. It knows no limits. It will continue to be the voice of business in the countryside. As we go on board with the Caritas-Caceres in this endeavor, we intend to put the welfare, not just of the business sector but also of the consumers and buyers, on top of our priorities,”  Llorin said in an interview with the Philippine Information Agency (PIA).

Llorin was represented by CSCCI Executive Vice President Ramon “Simon” Dy in the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signing held on July 19, Monday at the Robinsons Place Naga Atrium, here.

“Our major partnership in the staging of the Bishop Gainza Trade Fair this 2022 is a testament on how we believe in the potential of Micro Small and Medium Size Enterprises and their important role in our economic recovery in the new normal. Congratulations to our partners and all the exhibitors,” Camarines Sur Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CSCCI, Inc.) President Maria Emma F. Llorin stated in an interview with the Philippine Information Agency-Camarines Sur

Archdiocese of Caceres Archbishop Most Rev.Rolando Joven Tria Tirona, O.C.D., D.D emphasized that the thought behind the BFGTF is not just a purely commercial endeavor but traces deeper into the personal, spiritual lives.

“Without being pious, sabi nga sa Bibliya, what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but suffers the loss of his soul. What we’re saying is, yes, we have this trade fair, but still, we’re guided by the spirit of charity, justice, and fairness and this gives spiritual nuance to our trade fair. We want to instill in us the spirit of helping one another and our sense of participation in alleviating and eventually eradicating poverty,” Archbishop Tirona concluded. 

This year’s BFGTF intends to invite 100 exhibitors in its post-pandemic attempt to bring its physical market back into the mainstream after staging virtual selling for the past 2 years due to COVID 19 restrictions.

As it breaks new ground, CSCCI, Inc., intends to bring its thriving network of 200 active entrepreneur members to take an active part in the upcoming BFGTF 2022 happening from September 8 to 18 in time for the Feast of Our Lady of Nuestra Señora de Peñafrancia.

Under the theme “Sararo ki Ina sa pag Negosyo, pasiring sa Pag Asenso,” or being one with Ina in pursuing business towards a resilient economy, the Archdiocese of Caceres thru the Caritas-Caceres headed by Executive Director Rev. Fr. Marcel Emmanuel DP Real, has invited various entrepreneurs venturing into processed foods, handicrafts, wearables, fashion accessories, souvenirs, home furnishings, ornamental plants, and organic and natural products, among others, to join the September 2022 trade fair.

“We would like to thank our partners, the Department of Trade and Industry, CSCCI, Inc., the Archdiocese of Caceres, the Department of Agriculture, the management of Robinsons Place Naga, and most especially the media, who had been our partner for the past years, in disseminating the information to our potential buyers. We need your support to realize our target of achieving more sales so that we can help our MSMEs and be able to impart a big part of the proceeds to the needy thru the social action ministry of Caritas-Caceres,” Fr. Real said.

Real also emphasized that BFGTF is not only helping the business owners but also their employees who rely on their employers for their daily wages and salary.

“I think our new partner, the Camarine Sur Chamber of Commerce and Industry, will have a big role in realizing our vision of “bigger and better” BFGTF this 2022.
