Trade mission off to Jakarta, Manado

The Philippines, through the Department of Trade and Industry, is set to send a trade mission to Jakarta and Manado on September 4 to 8 in a bid to sustain the Davao-General Santos-Bitung Roll-On, Roll-Off operations and expand trade with Indonesia.

The DTI said it is lending support to the Davao Chamber of Commerce and the Indonesian Consulate in Davao in organizing the upcoming trade mission to Jakarta and Manado.

“Sustaining the RO-RO operations, launched in April this year by President Rodrigo Duterte and Indonesian President Joko Widodo, is high on the agenda of DTI,” Trade and Investments Promotion Undersecretary Nora K. Terrado said.
