Indoor and outdoor furniture and handicraft items are highlighted in the recent opening of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) SikatPinoy National Handicrafts Fair on Wednesday (May 6) at the Megatrade Halls in SM Megamall.
Products made by Filipino small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are showcased together with those of the APEC member-economies. The Filipino exhibitors came from 16 regions that have been carefully selected among over a hundred participants.
With the theme “Piling-Piling Produktong Pilipino” and also in relation to the country’s hosting of the annual APEC meeting, the fair was formally opened with a ribbon cutting with the assistance of the APEC ambassadors from Thailand, Indonesia, Peru, Malaysia, and Taiwan.
In addition, the visitors are entertained with an ‘unusual yet reliving’ performance from the group “Kontra-GaPi” which stands for Kontemporaryong Gamelan Pilipino; the resident ethnic music and dance ensemble from the College of Arts and Letters in the University of the Philippines (UP).
With the said event, DTI aims to help Filipino SMEs in giving them opportunity to increase their market exposure hence introducing them to individual consumers and institutional and potential buyers in the national domestic market.
