The Palawan Sangguniang Panlalawigan has expressed support to the “Buy Local, Go Lokal” Campaign of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

The Palawan SP adopted a resolution supporting the campaign which seeks to
revive the local economy and the business sector amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Sa ilalim ng ‘Buy Local, Go Lokal’ Campaign, hinihikayat ang mga mamamayan na tangkilikin ang ating sariling mga produkto na paraan upang masuportahan ang mga nasa Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). Hinihikayat din ang mga lokal na turista na bumisita sa ating sariling mga tourism destinations,” the provincial government said.

“Isa rin sa layunin ng programang ito na matulungan na makapasok sa ‘mainstream market’ ang MSMEs sa pamamagitan nang pagbibigay ng ‘merchandise development assistance’,” it added.

The said DTI campaign also provides opportunities to online sellers, social entrepreneurs, startups, cooperatives, and student entrepreneurs.

The DTI launched the “Buy Local, Go Lokal” Campaign last June.
