Locally Made Products that You Can Discover at DTI’s ‘Bagsakan’ Bazaar

The Christmas season is finally here and most of us are excited to treat ourselves with our bonus or buy gifts for our families and friends. As we enter the last month of 2020, the Department of Trade and Industry – Bureau of Domestic Trade Promotion (DTI-BDTP) shows us that we can purchase products and gifts while supporting local with a series of “Bagsakan” bazaars.
