Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the BDTP has collaborated with major commercial venues like Festival Mall to help MSMEs, farmers, and fruit growers reach more customers and sell their products. The bureau’s Bagsakan Special Project is a crisis-response initiative to ensure the availability of food products, stimulate consumption and support the reopening of the economy.
As reminder for visitors, safety protocols such as social distancing and wearing of face masks will be strictly implemented. Buyers and customers can also access the contact information of the Bagsakan exhibitors and products by downloading the DTI Sisidlan: Philippine Product Catalog which will be available at this link: bit.ly/SISIDLAN
