CABUGAO, Ilocos Sur – Vice Gov. Deogracias Victor “DV” Savellano, through a resolution which he principally authored, has batted for the designation of trade and industry promotions officers in every municipality.
“There’s really an ardent need to boost our own local industries and products in the province and we can effectively achieve this by designating trade and industry promotions officers in every municipality,” Savellano said.
The vice governor has noted that “we have various native products and attractive local and traditional industries here in Ilocos Sur but the question is, we don’t adequately promote them.”
Savellano also said that with the designation of trade and industry promotions officers in every municipality, the local government units could help in selling their local products which would generate more income in their locality.
“It would be more systematic if there are designated human resources to perform the tasks of promoting our own local products and traditional industries not only in Ilocos Sur but in the entire Ilocos Region,” the vice governor added.
