PHL GOVT EXPO & TRADE FAIR
NFA-Davao City participated in the three-day Philippine Government Expo and Trade Fair at the Abreeza Ayala Mall in Lanang, Davao City on June 6-8, 2016 organized by the Kabisig People’s Movement chaired by Daniel C. Guillen.
The Expo and Trade Fair showcased various government agencies’ programs and projects, product and services. Participating agencies were each provided with a booth where mall-goers may visit and register their inquiries.
NFA-Davao City Provincial Manager Virgilio B. Alerta initiated the sponsorship of 1 bag NFA rice at 50 kilograms which was raffled off to lucky visitors at one (1) kilogram each.
Aside from attending to the public inquiries mostly on how they could participate in the distribution of NFA rice in their locality, NFA-Davao City has also advocated the Food Guardian campaign. A number of mall goers were encouraged to sign up as Food Guardian volunteers. NFA rice was sold at 27.00/kg to the public.
Other participating government agencies in the Trade Fair were the DA Field Office XI, BFAR, Phil. Army 10th ID, PNP, TESDA, DENR, BIR, DILG, DBP, PhilPost, University of Southeastern Phil., PhilMech and Dr. Gerry Cunanan Foundation of the Southern Phil Medical Center.
