Bigger, Better and More! Bicol Business Month officially kicks off
This year’s Bicol Business Month (BBM) has officially kicked off last July 5, which was marked by an exhibit and trade fair in one of the biggest shopping centers in Naga City.
This year’s BBM carries the theme: ‘Bigger, Better and More!’.
According to the City, the BBM is a yearly activity of the Metro Naga Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MNCCI) that “aims, for one, to promote the businesses of the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the Metro Naga.”
Naga City Mayor John Bongat said that the business enterprises contribute largely in the economic dynamism of the City, which makes it land on top among the Most Competitive Component Cities in the country.
“Mayor Bongat has always been thankful to good collaboration and relationship existing between and among the government agencies and the business sector in Naga City and the surrounding municipalities as mirrored by the Bicol Business Month celebration— ensuring much better opportunities in the growth of the business sector within Metro Naga,” the city said.
Alegria Limjoco, the President of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), was present during the opening ceremonies of the BBM 2018.
The city said that aside from the exhibits and trade fair, other activities of the BBM 2018 for the whole month of July include the Farmers’ Congress, Angat Kabuhayan, Apad Bicol, DA Agri Fair, Bicol Construction and Building Expo, Cardio Marathon, Color Fun Run, ECOP Seminar, Wheels 2018, Bicol Business Youth Summit, Bicol Tourism and Hospitality Congress, Techno Lounge, Women’s Congress, Education Summit and the Halyao Awards.
