BACOLOD City – Packaging is the third largest industry in the world, said Lito Bunyag, organizer of the Global Pack 2012 International Packaging Conference and Exhibit that will be held on July 22-28 at the Sarabia Manor Convention Center in Iloilo City.
Bunyag was here June 22 for an info drive for the said event which is supported by the provincial government of Negros Occidental.
He spoke before business community leaders and small and medium entrepreneurs at the Capitol’s Conference Hall about the seminar.
“The seminar is precisely for the small and medium entrepreneurs,” he said.
Packaging experts from America will share their experiences, techniques and programs with producers particularly in the food sector during the seminar.
Bunyag said they are inviting the business community, civic organizations and professional groups to the seminar.
He said the principal organizer of the seminar is the Central Philippine University which has set up the first school in the Visayas and Mindanao on Packaging Engineering.
“We are also linking up with the LGUs and the Church because both are highly organized,” Bunyag added, to ensure the success of the event.
