Permanent showcase for PH exports opens
You can now view the latest Philippine design and crafts throughout the year.
After the completion of a P10-million overhaul, the 25-year-old Hall One at the International Trade Center in Pasay City was reopened as the country’s permanent show space.
The Department of Trade and Industry envisions the Budji Layug and Royal Pineda-designed facility as a venue to promote Philippine exports.
Associations of manufacturers, from furniture and garments to jewelry and gifts, can capture both foreign and local buyers by leasing the facility for, say, two months.
Hall One, which is managed by the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions, also serves as a business hub, offering complementary services such as business matching, factory visits, export order-taking, shipping assistance, design clinics and industry workshops.
