 DTI confers Bagwis seal to 129 establishments

DAGUPAN CITY  – Some 129 business establishments in Pangasinan were recently conferred with theBagwis Seal of Excellence awards by the Department of  Trade and Industry as a recognition of their commitment to provide good products and services to consumers.
Regional Director Florante Leal of DTI said the activity aims to recognize business people  who follow the rules and regulations of fair trade and at the same time promote the welfare of the consuming public.
