Baguio Representative Mark Go said he met with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to push for the development of crafts industries in the the Summer Capital.

This after the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared Baguio as one of its Creative Cities.

The Baguio politiko, during a speech at the House of Representatives in November, called on legislators to support small and emerging industries.

“Baguio has nurtured a rich melting pot of upland and lowland cultures that has shaped the city’s thriving local economy. Baguio was cited for its strong and noteworthy industries of traditional weaving, wood and masonry sculpting, and metal crafting. Not only do these industries preserve our indigenous cultures and showcase our diverse artistic talents, Baguio’s creative sector makes up much of the city’s local tourism and trade, which contributes the lion’s share to the city’s gross domestic product,” Go said.

“In all these, the goal is supporting productive activities, decent job creation and encouraging the formalization and growth of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs),” he added.#
