We’re two months away from the highly anticipated celebration of the National Exporters Week (NEW) 2023!
Co-organized by the Department of Trade and Industry-Export Marketing Bureau (DTI-EMB), the Export Development Council (EDC), and the Philippine Exporters Confederation, Inc. (PHILEXPORT), this event promises to be a pivotal gathering for the export industry, offering valuable insights and networking opportunities. The NEW/NEC 2023 is slated on December 04-07, 2023, at the Sheraton Hotel in Pasay City.
The NEW 2023 theme centers on “Developing the Philippines as an Agile Export Powerhouse.” This year’s proposed theme aligns with the Philippine Export Development Plan (PEDP) 2023-2028 objectives, envisioning the export industry as an agile powerhouse in key sectors. This vision emphasizes prioritizing the export industry one step at a time. The industry must quickly adapt to global market challenges and opportunities, aiming for global recognition with characteristics like reliability, design-driven approach, sustainability, and forward-looking.
The week-long celebration of NEW will feature thematic sessions/forums on various export-related topics, business-to-business matching activities, exhibitions showcasing exporters, export-enablers, e-commerce platforms, and service providers. Additionally, the ‘Usapang Exports’ will also be featured as a series of information sessions under the Philippine Export Competitiveness Program (PECP), designed to empower existing and aspiring exporters with productivity, innovation, and market trend updates, ensuring their competitiveness and global market readiness.
The National Export Congress (NEC) will be the culminating event of the NEW 2023, highlighting government and private sector initiatives supporting exporters. Further, at the Exporters’ Night on 07 December 2023, esteemed exporters will be recognized for their stellar performance contributing growth to the economy and innovations in the export industry.
