DTI calls for unified link of biz sector
by PIA-CAR

Department of Trade and Industry Usec. Ruth Castelo enjoined Cordillera stakeholders to build stronger partnership towards empowered businesses and consumers.

“Government work is never a one-sided task. It can neither be just the government doing all the work nor the consumer and trade organizations exerting all the efforts. A committed partnership among our sectors must be harnessed in order to effectively address consumer protection issues and affect positive change,” Castelo said during the Regional Convergence Convention for Business Establishments and Consumers in the city last week.

She urged them to be ambitious with their goals and pursue to become powerful forces for the good of the Filipino people. “Be one with the DTI in enabling business and empowering consumers.”

The convention, which adopted the theme, “Enhancing government partnership with consumer and trade organizations to champion business and consumers,” was attended by around 250 businessmen/entrepreneurs, consumer groups, and representatives of ConsumerNet member- agencies.

Castelo said she was honored to be a part of such auspicious convention of consumer protection advocates and trade organizations for the noble cause of forming and strengthening partnerships among the government, consumers, and business to enhance consumer protection and raise the standards of business engagement in the country.

“Our work in the government is built on partnerships. None of us can fulfill our functions and provide quality service to the people without recognizing the need to converge with our key stakeholders,” Castelo stressed.

She called on consumers and businesses to get organized and let their collective voices be heard.

Castelo also advised the participants to look into policy formulation, monitoring, information and education, and innovations, both in consumer protection and in business promotion as possible areas of cooperation.

Meanwhile, Philippine Retailers Association Secretary General Evelyn Salire talked on the importance of trade associations, while Philippine Coalition of Consumer Welfare Inc. President Ricardo Samaniego shared the consumer organization’s experience from formation to action.

Orientations on new consumer expectations, retail trends and innovations, and updates on new laws, rules and regulations affecting consumers and business establishments were also conducted.

The participants underwent two workshops, namely identification of additional issues and areas of collaboration and way forward, and work plan formulation for the creation of trade associations and consumer organizations.
