TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan, July 22 (PIA)--The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in the Cagayan Valley region recently welcomed its new Regional Director in the person of Romleah Juliet Pulido-Ocampo.
Hailing from Sanchez Mira, Cagayan, Ocampo is no stranger to Region 02 having spent her early school years here.
"I come to Region 02 filled with positive feelings...happy that I have been given this opportunity to serve the region of my birth...excited and challenged because I know it is going to be a tough job...," Ocampo, in her message during the turn-over ceremony, said.
Before her transfer to DTI Region 02, Ocampo was the Program Director of DTI's Bureau of Domestic Trade Promotion's Go Lokal! for almost two years.
Go Lokal is a program initiated by DTI which enables smaller enterprises to access the retail shelves of known establishments without the usual listing fee. It is a DTI program that supports emerging suppliers and products of quality, unique designs and high market potential.
She also served with the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM) for almost 20 years, thus, bringing with her an impressive record as a marketer and promoter of the Philippine-made products here and abroad.
With her background and a clear vision of what needs to be done, DTI Region 02 looks forward to being able to take advantage of the vast opportunities for our products locally and globally.
Ocampo hopes that DTI shall continue to play a major role in levelling up Region 02's economic ranking in collaboration with other government agencies, the private sector, local governments and other stakeholders.
