Demand increases in Europe for Filipino goods
DTI-Western Visayas Director Senen Perlada bared this during Thursday's forum with the Iloilo business community at Hotel del Rio. The forum aimed to engage the stakeholders of Iloilo for "Doing Business in Free Trade Areas" with focus on the Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) economic community.
Perlada, together with Walter Van Hattum, counselor and head of economic and trade section of EU delegation in Manila, focused on the freely tradable Philippine seven goods and five services ready for exports to the European market.
Van Hattum said the Asean will have to promote, encourage, and compel member nations to trade with EU market currently booming with 15 percent increase augmented by a reinvigorated relationship with the Asean countries.
Currently, a zero tariff and access to EU markets are open to 1,000 products in the Asean and Iloilo stakeholders must be aware and look forward to avail themselves of this export opportunity, said Hattum.
He said the Philippines may greatly benefit from it and local products like mangoes in Guimaras and Iloilo, muscovado sugar of Antique, and pineapples are among those eyed for exports. Other winner goods are agrifoods, electronics, textiles, and furniture.
Filipinos in Europe and Germany this year will showcase the best Philippine food products with ISO certification and registered. Other EU nations will follow the exposition of Philippine products.
