SP seeks DTI help on SME

BATAC CITY – As continued support program to help local entrepreneurs, the city council here has sought the technical assistance of the Department of Trade and Industry.

City Councilor Violeta Daradar-Nalupta said that the Sangguniang Panglungsod had passed a resolution to formalize the support program of the city government on small and medium enterprise (SME).

Under this program, DTI will initially train barangay folks of Brgy. Barani in meat processing as well as product packaging and labeling.
