The Department of the Interior and Local Government RO2 (DILG R02) and the Department of Trade and Industry RO2 (DTI R02) jointly organized and conducted the “2nd Cagayan Valley Regional Investment Forum” aptly themed “PPP: Government Nexus to Sound Economic Development” on December 10, 2018 at the Pulsar Hotel in Buntun, Tuguegarao City.
DTI Cagayan gathered its KMME (Kapatid Mentor Micro Enterprise) graduates Batch 1 to 4 to orient them on the benefits of industry clustering, among which is establishing sustainable linkages with large enterprises and strengthening their role as suppliers and distributors within the value chain. The activity also intended to organize the graduates and cluster them according to the seven priority industry clusters of Region 02 in order to increase the productivity in which companies within the same cluster can compete nationally and globally. This aim is synchronized with the slogan of the KMME Program, “Angat Lahat.”
Taking advantage of the festive air during the Christmas holidays, the City Government of Tuguegarao and St. Peter’s Metropolitan Cathedral partnered with DTI Cagayan to mount the Pattaradday Ta Paskua Ta Cathedral Trade Fair which ran from December 15-24, 2018 at the St. Peter’s Cathedral Grounds, Tuguegarao City, Cagayan.
