Two micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in Bataan were awarded Wednesday by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) during the opening of Likha ng Central Luzon Trade Fair 2019.
Amanda’s Marine Products was recognized as the 3rd 2018 Likha Top Seller and Likha Gem Award for Bataan.

Meanwhile, Khalimah Handicrafts and Souvenirs was conferred with the Green Product Award.
