TACLOBAN CITY- Local producers of ‘pasalubong’ items will sell their wares at a trade fair organized by the City Tourism Operations Office from September 27 to 29, 2022.

The highlight event of the Tourism Week Celebration of the city, which will be held at Plaza Rizal, will also make available an array of services from the city government.

Aside from being a venue to market and showcase the food and non-food items of local producers, it will also have on September 27th a free employment information and skills registration booth courtesy of the Public Employment Service Office (PESO).

The booth will provide details valuable to job seekers.

The Community Livelihood Extension Program (CLEP) will also bring their “Libreng Gupit” and free massage services on opening day (September 27) to patrons of the fair.

In consonance with the EV Turismo Booster Caravan of the Department of Tourism, a COVID-19 Vaccination Drive in partnership with the City Health Office will also be held and target about 94 workers from the local tourism industry who are yet to get their booster shots against the viral disease, according to acting CTOO Head Maria Lumen P. Tabao.

She said that the initiative seeks to ensure the full revival of the local tourism industry after a slump brought on by the pandemic.

The trade fair will be open on the said dates from 8 am to 5 p.m.
