Murillo said booths are set up to showcase various products from respective barangays. Concepcion said, “Bahagi po ito ng ating ika-78 taong Anibersaryo ng Liberasyon ng Bayan ng Mariveles, kaya atin pong inaanyayahan ang ating mga kababayan na tangkilikin po natin ang mga produktong gawa ng bawat Mariveleño tulad ng bag, kasoy, kakanin, buko pie, atchara, halaman, at iba pa”.
The mayor also said the LGU launched the trade fair to promote products of Mariveles micro small and medium enterprises.
He also introduced cashless transaction and online selling to help businesses.
For his part, Catipon said, “Layunin natin na matulungan na mas makilala pa ang mga produktong Mariveles sa buong bayan, sa buong lalawigan, o maging sa ibang bahagi pa ng bansa”.
