PUBLIC HEARING ON DTI'S IMPROVED BAGWIS AWARDS PUBLIC HEARING ON DTI'S IMPROVED BAGWIS AWARDS After some 10 years since its launching, DTI decided to e-launch the “new improved” Bagwis Awards. DTI will ow apply a bolder approach of getting retailers to seek his coveted seal of good housekeeping. Potential candidates will now be approached by the regional offices of the DTI and invited to apply for the said Award. Unlike before where winners of this award hold on to it perpetually, everyone holding on to this award will now be reviewed every three years to see if they still deserve to be given the award.  Submitted documents to earn this award has also been substantially minimized. DTI regional and provincial offices will be granted prizes for developing the most number of Bagwis Awardees in their areas for the next year.  Emphasis here on developing customer service especially for the regional retailers.

Gen. and Economic Planning Sec. Arsenio M. Balisacan acts as PCC’s founding Chairman.  The Forum introduces the PCC to business associations, coops, consumer groups and other stakeholders on how the PCC can help these stakeholders view competition and pricing as being fair in our economy.  On the sidelines of this Forum, STC gives former DTI Usec. Atty. Victorio Mario Dimagiba a token of PAGASA’s appreciation (a commemorative coin) for partnering with us through PAGASA’s 30 years of existence. Atty.
