Secretary Lopez also cited brighter economic prospects for this year, 2021. He believes the DTI will serve as a primary economic catalyst. "Today's opening of this Virtual National Trade Fair is part of the Department of Trade & Industry's pivot to digital, and very much in keeping with the buzzwords in our mission statement, which are: innovative, competitive, job-generating, inclusive, and empowering."

Undersecretary Abdulgani Macatoman of the Trade Promotions Group also said that the domestic trade fairs carry a rich tradition of success for MSMEs, than in 2019.

Reasons why I love Derma Science Hand Sanitizer


Handwashing is a must these days because of Covid-19 virus.

The ongoing pandemic brought about by the Covid-19 virus had caused an alarm across the globe. Health experts say that the best way to fight the said virus aside from wearing the proper face mask and face shield would have to be frequent hand washing. Effective handwashing means scrubbing your hands with soap and water for a minimum of at least 20 seconds (to make it easier, sing an entire Happy birthday song), then rinsing. This is especially important after bathroom use, prior to eating, after coughing, sneezing or each time you blow your nose to prevent infection and possible illnesses

DermaScience Hand Sanitizer Soothing Gel

The spread of coronavirus causes chronic respiratory disease. But what if soap and water aren't available? What should we do? Doctors suggest using a hand sanitizer.

Hand sanitizer is a good alternative to hand washing if water & soap aren't available. 

I happen to have very dry hands, and it had always been my dilemma each time I use a hand sanitizer. Sanitizers usually make my hands even more drier so I abhor using them. This had been my issue until I discovered a new product called Derma Science Hand Sanitizing Gel. This is lightweight, non-sticky, moisturizing hand sanitizing formulated with sakura extract and has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties to kill the most common causing germs.

Free Training and Assessment for Electrical Installation & Maintenance NC II

If you're like most recent graduates who were unlucky not being able to attend actual graduation from senior high school and resorted to "virtual graduation" instead due to the pandemic, then consider yourself lucky if you're currently enrolled even in virtual classes. But for most youngsters, their education has been put to a halt because of the fear brought about by the Covid-19 virus. While we are still awaiting DepEd and CHED's go-signal when will they allow the regular classes again--you may want to check out what TESDA, Quezon City local government and Quezon City 3rd district congressman Allan Reyes has prepared for those interested to avail this scholarship. They are offering Electrical Installation and Maintenance NC II course for those interested participants who actually make the cut.
