The Province of Pangasinan made an impressive debut at the Manila FAME, showcasing 10 micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and their export-quality products at the World Trade Center.

The 10 MSMEs were Herwin Buccat, Blades, Erastus, ILO, WELAB, Alma, Rach, Cawayan, Joy, and B6. These creatives offer opulent fashion pieces, home furnishings that evoke tropical and contemporary elegance, chef-approved kitchen knives from acclaimed swordsmiths, and more fantastic craft that honor the province’s agricultural bounty and rich heritage.
