IN a time of the Philippines’ rising exports, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Cebu invites food entrepreneurs to a basic exporting seminar scheduled on May 26.
Micro, small, and medium enterprises engaged in any food business, whether fresh or processed, beverages and drinks and other related sectors, who are currently exporting their products or still planning to go into exports are urged to attend the whole-day talk at the Golden Prince Hotel in Cebu City.
“This seminar aims to enable exporters and those who intend to export their food products in the global market to build their knowledge, understand and develop skills on the dynamics of exporting,” said the trade agency in a statement.
The seminar, which is free of charge, will discuss introduction to exports, export accreditation, market research and strategy, Food and Drug Administration regulations, and export strategic planning among others.
Early this month, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) reported that merchandise exports grew by 21 percent in March year-on-year, amounting to a hefty $5.579 billion.
The country’s merchandise exports have sustained this growth for four straight months, said PSA, amid a decline in global trade.
