The Regional Trade Fair staged by the DTI R02 at the Alabang Festival Mall generated almost a million pesos on its opening day to the delight of the MSME-exhibitors. Out of the 1.103 million sales, 4H Handicrafts of Nueva Vizcaya made the highest sales with PhP198,650 cash sales and PhP187,000 booked sales.

With the improved designs and packaging, the products of the MSMEs have become more appealing to buyers who flocked to the venue on opening day.

The RTF which features furniture and handicrafts, processed foods and beverages, fresh fruits and vegetables and garden plants and seedlings runs from 20-26 September 2018.
