CITY

OF SAN FERNANDO---Look­ing for af­ford­able gifts for your loved ones this Christmas sea­son?

Visit the City of San Fernando as it for­mally launches to­day its Pre-Christmas Trade Fair and Diskwento Car­a­van lo­cated in front of the City Hall.

The cer­e­mo­nial open­ing was led by Vice-Mayor Jimmy Lazatin, Chair for Com­mit­tee on Trade and In­dus­try Coun­cilor Re­den Halili, Coun­cilor BJ Lag­man, Busi­ness Li­cense and Per­mit Divi­sion Chief Joseph Gar­cia, City Market Spe­cial­ist Levi Tiomico and De­part­ment of Trade and In­dus­try- Pam­panga Direc­tor Elenita Or­do­nio.

Dubbed “Presy­ong Panalo para sa mamim­il­ing Fer­nandino,” the fair which show­cases var­i­ous lo­cal

prod­ucts made by Fer­nandino mi­cro, small and medium en­trepreneurs will last un­til De­cem­ber 3.

“More than 20 en­trepreneurs gath­ered for this sea­son’s fair to sell na­tive del­i­ca­cies, wood crafts, kitchen uten­sils, li­nen prod­ucts and many more at a rea­son­able price,” said Mayor Ed­win “EdSa” San­ti­ago in an in­ter­view.

As part of en­sur­ing con­sumers’rights, the city through its Eco­nomic En­ter­prise Divi­sion in part­ner­ship with DTI also led the de­struc­tion of 98 de­fec­tive weigh­ing scales and 1,000 boxes of un­cer­ti­fied Christmas lights.

San­ti­ago said the lo­cal gov­ern­ment con­ducts reg­u­lar cal­i­bra­tion test both in public mar­kets and su­per­mar­kets to stop the pro­lif­er­a­tion of il­le­gal weights and mea­sures.

For her part, Or­do­nio ex­plained that the lights were con­fis­cated for lack of of­fi­cial la­bels and mark­ings.

“The city takes nec­es­sary ac­tions to stop the sell­ing of re­stricted items and we ap­peal to the public to be more vig­i­lant in pur­chas­ing prod­ucts to avoid be­ing vic­tim­ized by un­scrupu­lous ven­dors,” San­ti­ago added.--
