ANGELES CITY, Pampanga – Micro, small and medium enterprises can use the One Town, One Product souvenir center here to showcase and promote their merchandise free of charge.
The city government of Angeles made this initiative to help MSMEs recover from the impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 health crisis and at the same time, promote and boost the sales of local products.
Executive assistant IV Reina Manuel said any potential merchant can register via a link provided in the OTOP Angeles City Store Facebook page managed by the Angeles City Economic Development and Investment Promotions Office.
“The application form should be filled out through the link provided which will automatically be submitted to the ACEDIPO. They can also contact the numbers 09234247320 and 09973102202,” Manuel said.
Irish Bonus-Llego Llego, ACEDIPO officer-in-charge, said local merchants just need to submit their barangay permits.
“If the merchant is a food enterprise, it should also provide its Food and Drug Administration certification or it should be FDA-approved,” Llego said.
She also said the Negosyo Center located at Robinsons Starmills would be transferred to OTOP.
The OTOP center is located on Nepomuceno Street, Barangay Sto. Rosario. It is open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
