Filipino Exporters

By Pinoys? Buy Pinoy!

With the increase in fuel prices quite recently, how far will P10 get you? Far enough to marvel at the creativity and ingenuity of Filipino entrepreneurs. We were at the 5th Buy Pinoy Exporters Fair - Pinoy At Its Best: World-Class Philippine Products for Filipino Buyers last August 4-8, 2004 at the 5th Level, Megatrade Hall 2, Building B and P10 was the cost of the ticket per person. Once inside the hall, we met Filipino entrepreneurs who sold anything and everything from paper products, to bags, to textiles, to furniture and d�cor, to food, etc., etc. So, if you are looking for a business opportunity to promote Philippine products domestically or elsewhere or if you are looking to order some nice Philippine-made items for gifts or souvenir items for a celebration that you are planning, please read on and know how to get in touch with some pretty talented and creative fellow Pinoys:

These days, P10 does not seem like much but it can bring you an appreciation of what Filipinos can create with the resources that are available.
