DTI holds nationwide Diskwento Caravan
|With the 2016-2017 School Year just days away, the Department of Trade and Industry has started a nationwide Diskwento Caravan Balik-Eskwela Edition through its Regional and Provincial Offices.
A regular project by the Department since 2009, the Diskwento Caravan aims to provide opportunity for consumers to access basic goods, school supplies and prime commodities at discounted or reduced prices by bringing manufacturers and retailers.
DTI-Regional Operations Group Undersecretary Zenaida Maglaya said that the Diskwento Caravan Balik-Eskwela Edition would help parents save money especially in preparation for the new school year.
“We encourage parents to come to the Diskwento Caravan, especially with the opening of the school year just days away. This program would definitely help our parents stretch their budget,” Maglaya said.
The Diskwento Caravan Balik-Eskwela Edition aims to provide and bring basic and prime commodities closer to the general consuming public. Products sold during the Balik-Eskwela Editions are food items, school supplies, uniforms, shoes, and other school related merchandise.
The Diskwento Caravan Balik-Eskwela Edition is also in partnership with the local manufacturers of school related items who are willing to sell at a lower price.
