After its hybrid show in 2020, ProPak Asia successfully executed its comeback and 29th edition on 15 June 2022 at Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre, Bangkok, Thailand.
Informa Markets, the show organiser, invited several delegations from Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Philippines, to name a few.
Representatives from the Philippines came from the Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Agriculture, Philippine Coconut Authority, Philippine Printing Technical Foundation as well as the Philippine Association of Food Technologists Inc.
Bagging this year’s theme “Sustainability in Processing and Packaging for our Better World”, ProPak continues to provide the opportunities for the industry to explore, learn, and source from more than a thousand companies in the processing and packaging industries with having its commitment on being sustainable in every possible way.
The Department of Trade and Industry - Regional Operations Group Undersecretary Blesila Lantayona led the Philippine delegation from DTI bringing together over 180 micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to the international trade expo.
“DTI acknowledged the role of good packaging and processing to Philippine MSMEs in enhancing productivity, marketability, profitability, and competitiveness of MSMEs,” said Usec. Lantayona during her welcome message at the opening ceremony of ProPak Asia 2022.
Joining the DTI delegation were OTOP Next Gen Program Head Assistant Secretary Demphna Du-Naga, DTI Export Marketing Bureau Director Christopher Lawrence Arnuco, DTI Export Marketing Bureau Assistant Director Jhino Ilano, numerous Regional Directors, Assistant Regional Directors, Provincial Directors and some technical staff.
“DTI vows to continue its support to ProPak as the Department has seen a huge potential of the Philippines in the packaging industry and exploring ways to reach its goal to help the people in the industry through expanding their knowledge, innovating packaging solutions, and connecting with the international network of the industry.” Usec. Lantayona added.
Since 2018, DTI organises Philippine Investment Forum during ProPak Asia to update the investors and the attendees on the Philippine market and industry reports.
