Mindanao trade mission cites rosy prospects in Saudi

Mindanawon government and private sector leaders called its recent trade mission to
Saudi Arabia a success and revealed at least nine breakthroughs, in a press conference here at the Marco Polo Wednesday.

Merly Cruz, DTI assistant secretary and mission head, said the achievements they cited needs to be backed with more support to ensure actual trading.

The mission took on a Philippine product patronage campaign among OFWs and conducted bilateral linkages with Saudi businessmen to hasten penetration of
Mindanao products to the Arab nation.

The mission’s report cited 10 recommendations to support the trade mission’s gains, including the fast tracking of the establishment of the Philippine Halal Accreditation Body, and its recognition by Arabian authorities.
