ROXAS CITY, Capiz -- At least 55 Micro Small and Medium Enterpreneurs from the processed food, handicraft and horticulture/cutflower sectors will join the Capiztahan 2017 Agro–Industrial Fair from April 21 to 23 at the Provincial Park here.

“The show aims to provide venue that will showcase the best products from Capiz and help local MSMEs generate more sales. It also intends to enhance the negotiation skills of the producers as well as promote locally produced products,” said Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) provincial director Ermelinda Pollentes.

The 16 municipalities and Roxas City will also showcase their fresh and processed agricultural products during the show.

The three–day fair is organized by DTI Provincial Office in coordination with the Capiz provincial and Roxas City Governments, United Capizeños Foundation, Inc., Provincial Micro, Small & Medium Enterprise Development Council, Capiz MSME Center, Inc., and Office of the Provincial Agriculturist.

Products developed as a result of product development consultancies provided in the previous year will be showcased during the exhibit, Pollentes added.

New product designs and food variants will be available for the buyers to enjoy.

She noted that the fair will pave the way for market expansion for MSMEs as she is encouraging the public to support Capiz’ entrepreneurs as they propel to success and provide more employment opportunities to Capiceños. (PIA)
