The Davao City One-Town One-Product or OTOP convergence conference will open today at Apo View Hotel. It would feature one-on-one consultations with experts.
This is to give some 50 OTOP entrepreneurs in the city a chance to bring out their problems to the experts.
Available to give their expert advise are representatives from the DTI Designers Pool who are experts on designs, labeling and packaging; MASICAP who are experts in business plans and feasibility studies; and PBSP for enterprise development and corporate social responsibility.
The OTOP conference would also discuss issues taken up during last year’s convergence of micro-small-and medium enterprises, local and national government agencies, and civil society groups.
To cap the conference, recognition to outstanding OTOP practitioners would be handed out by the DTI Davao City Field Office.
I would be representing Mayor Rody Duterte in the conference.
