For a long time, since the US Bases, walang product ang Olongapo City and now I am proud to say na ang Gawang Gapo ay mayroong over 94 products in development dahil na rin sa tulong ng iba’t ibang sektor lalo na ang DOST.”

“We should push our products and make them more marketable. In order to make these products marketable, we need to apply more research and development,” Mayor Gordon added.

“Napakahalaga ng research and development sa ating Medium and Small Enterprises kaya dapat i-apply natin ang mga ito to make Philippine products more competitive in the global market,” said Mayor Gordon.

The DOST S&T Fair will run until November 14, 2008. No entrance fee and everyone is invited to take part in this innovative program by the DOST.
