Thirty Micro Small Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) will showcase their products in a 3-day trade fair in time for the reopening of Boracay.
The activity dubbed as “Bagong Buhay Boracay Showcase 2018” spearheaded by the Department of Trade and Industry – Aklan will be held from October 26 to 28.
The fair, which will be held at CityMall Boracay will highlight products produced by MSMEs affected by the island’s closure like festive gifts and decorative items, classy fiber-based fashion accessories, bamboo and wood welcome tokens, furnishings, souvenir items including processed foods.
A craft demonstration corner will also be mounted to showcase the skills of local artisans in Boracay.
Some products to be displayed will come from different municipalities which best represent their own creative skill and rich industry.
These MSMEs are those tapped and assisted by the Negosyo Centers in terms of skills trainings and product development as part of Negosyo Center’s business advisory and other related assistance.
Bagong Buhay Boracay Product Showcase will be an avenue for them to get exposed and be linked in the market as Boracay rises again.
The event is organized in partnership with CityMall Boracay, the Local Government Unit of Malay and the Provincial Government of Aklan.
