We opened the Consumer Fair yesterday at the Gaisano Mall Of Davao to usher in our consumer welfare and protection month celebration.
With the theme “on the healthy and safe side of living,” the exhibitors are categorized into the “healthy” and “safe” products and services.
Activities for the next three days at the Atrium of the Mall include the annual poster-making contest, lectures on consumer rights and responsibilities and organic farming, cooking demos, seminars on utilization of kitchen waste, and healthy exercises.
The activities are spearheaded by the DTI and the Consumer Net, composed of government and non-government consumer groups.
At the ribbon-cutting yesterday, I got the commitment from fellow city councilor Pilar Braga to help fund this annual consumer fair after my term ends in 2010. I have been assisting the DTI mount this activity with P100,000 contribution from my Annual Development Fund.
Councilor Braga, who once served as executive director of Konsumo Dabaw, promised to continue the funding assistance starting 2011.
