Businesses in Abra continue to flourish

By Maria Teresa B. Benas

BANGUED, Abra, Dec. 4 (PIA) — More than 60 local enterprises participated in this year’s Early Christmas Sale in celebration of the Abra Week for Peace 2012.

In an interview with Arell F. Bañez, provincial director of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), he said this year’s trade fair is more successful compared to the past ones, because aside from the more than 60 entrepreneurs who participated, there are new groups and not just individual businesses that joined the fair.

The increasing participation of firms to the fair, Banez said, “Is an indication that local businesses are flourishing and our economy is very much healthy.”

The week-long event that opened Tuesday offers local and indigenous products such as wood and bamboo crafts and furniture and fixtures; the loom-woven and natural-dyed garments; processed foods such as meat and veggie noodles; plants and flowers; novelty items; locally-produced organic pest and fertilizers and even travel and tour services.

Ruby M. Bersamin, wife of Governor Estaquio Bersamin, led the opening ceremony and ribbon-cutting of the trade fair at the provincial capitol grounds.

Simultaneous with the trade fair is the conduct of a discount sale for the consumers with the New Commercial Trading (NCT) as DTI’s partner enterprise.

Melinda Co, owner/manager of the NCT had agreed to offer as much as eight percent discount on selected basic and other prime commodities as NCT’s expression of thanksgiving to the public for their continued patronage and support. (JDP/MTBB-PIA CAR,Abra)

  1. What? indication that our economy is very much healthy?
    What economy? economy for the poor majority or just healthy economy for the few rich?
    Did you forget to take your medicine again?
