Trade Fair Highlights Fernandino Culture [ Tuesday, 10th of February 2015 | 2 years ago ]
Themed as “an afFair to remember”, the five-day activity is showcasing the indigenous products of Fernandinos like wood crafts, water lily handicrafts, fresh farm products, authentic Campangan cuisine and native delicacies.
In an interview, Mayor Santiago bared that a new vision is being drafted for the LGU and that is to become “the center for Capampangan culture, heritage, culinary and arts.”
“May binubuong bagong bisyon para sa San Fernando. Iyan ang magiging sentro ng kulturang kapampangan dahil katungkulan ng lahat ng mamamayan sa lungsod ang pagpapalago ng kulturang Fernandino. Culture marks our identity as a people so it should be enriched and preserved.”
The fair was organized by the Kagananpan Executive Committee chaired by Gil Cortez, City Agriculture and Veterinary Office led by Myrna Manabat, City Economic Enterprise Division managed by Levi Tiomico, and the City Tourism and Investment Promotion Office.
“We are expecting a positive response from the local buyers and even entrepreneurs to remain remarkable” said the mayor.
He noted with this, small and medium economic enterprises will have more opportunities and will also promote healthy competition with giant companies including malls. Likewise, he added activities like this will revitalize the city’s public markets which are considered as cultural treasures.
“Bahagi ng kultura nating mga Fernandino ang mga palengke kaya palalakasin natin ang ating kalakalan at industriya. Ipapagawa natin ang ating mga palengke to give enough spaces to our micro enterprises.”
“Ang gusto natin ay magkakaroon ng masiglang investment promotion, trade fairs at road shows ukol sa mga produkto ng San Fernando. We will push not only the One Town One Product program; we will involve everybody through the One Barangay One Product program.”
Women entrepreneurs who went trainings under the city’s Gender and Development Office and who recently received financial aid from the Self Employment Assistance-Kaunlaran (SEA-K) Program had also set up stalls in the fair to showcase their products.
