TORRANCE, CA, March 28, 2017 – Discovering Opportunities is a milestone that is the first of its kind in promoting Philippine products in the United States and beyond.
Organized by Pangasinan Brotherhood-USA, a 501(c)(3) in cooperation with the Philippine Trade & Investment Center-Los Angeles, EC Ferrer, CHB Inc., Provenance Holdings Corporation dba PLANET63 and Health Evolution, LLC, have teamed up to put together an event for the purpose of promoting Philippine-made products globally. This event invites wholesalers, distributors, importers, retailers and anyone who is considering establishing an e-commerce business. This event hopes to bring attention to the many well-crafted, one-of-a-kind, and innovative products that are manufactured and processed in the Philippines. The event will take place on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 8:30 am to 12:00 pm and will be held at the Toyota Auto Museum in the City of Torrance. The address is 19600 Van Ness, Torrance, CA 90501.
This free seminar and showcasing event will cover topics from product sourcing, utilizing online directory portals, shipping practices such as U.S. Customs and Freight Forwarding, to creating an e-commerce website.
According to Ferdinand “Bong” Soriano, lead convenor of the event, “ a system of “active selling/promotion” has to be created to consistently promote Philippine products. Data from these types of events are critical to the Philippine manufacturers. It gives them a perspective on how they will enter the US market and beyond. Also, Mike Pestano of Health Evolution, LLC stated “ there is a tremendous importance in creating and engaging social media communities thus create a robust e-commerce website.”
There has already been a great amount of attention regarding products from China. This is a chance to truly focus on the great products of the Philippines manufacturers. The products range from electronics, coconut products, jewelry, clothing, furniture, food and beverages, etc. Pangasinan Brotherhood-USA along with Provenance Holdings Corporation dba PLANET63 created and initiated this project in an attempt to create opportunities for small to midsized Philippine manufacturers to promote their products in the United States and beyond. Also, an avenue or a series of marketing activities are being created to consistently provide “active” selling that would help keep a “top-of-mind” awareness of Philippine products in the United States and beyond.
Provenance Holdings Corp dba PLANET63’s will spearhead the activities in the coming months that will bring attention to Philippine products as a whole. Provenance Holdings Corporation will be organizing future trade expos focused solely on Philippine products and supplementary content such as YouTube shows that will add to the awareness.

PHL, Thailand going for 'balanced' trade relations

THAILAND -- Trade relations between the Philippines and Thailand are expected to be "balanced" after the visit of President Rodrigo R. Duterte, Trade Secretary Ramon M. Lopez said Wednesday, March 22.

"Right now, Thailand is our sixth largest trading partner ... Mas malaki ang export nila sa atin kaysa ang export natin sa kanila. What we will do is to balance it," Lopez said in a press conference in Bangkok.

Duterte and his delegation arrived in Thailand on Monday, March 20, and will be there until Wednesday, March 22.

Part of the official delegation are Acting Secretary of Foreign Affairs Enrique A. Manalo, Tourism Secretary Wanda T. Teo and Senator Alan Peter S. Cayetano.

"In this Thailand trip, I guess what I can add is the commitment from Prime Minister [Prayut Chan-o-cha] to help us balance the trade between the two countries," Lopez said.

Latest data from the Philippine Statistics Authority showed Philippine exports to Thailand reached $2.129 billion in 2016.

Meanwhile, imports from Thailand amounted to $6.472 billion. — GMA News
