President Rodrigo Duterte has also extended his support to the Kabisig fair.

“May this expo and trade fair update our countrymen on various agencies’ profiles, mandates and accomplishments as well as their products and services. I hope that many of our kababayan will take advantage of this one-stop shop and avail of the amenities that our public offices offer,” he said.
