The 34th Negros Trade Fair at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City ended last night with total sales of P22.9 million, NTF chairman Michael Claparols said.
Sales this year were lower than last year’s P32 million, but higher in terms of square meter yield, Claparols said.The trade fair this year only had 64 exhibitor booths compared to 82 in 2018, because of a smaller floor area caused by ongoing renovations at the Glorietta, he said.

‘Enough pork supply for holidays’
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA
Negros Occidental has enough supply of pork and pork products for the holiday season, Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said yesterday.
“Even with the standing 90-day temporary ban on the entry of live hogs, pork and pork products in Negros Occidental from Luzon , the PVO is assuring the people that there will still be pork treats for the Christmas season,” he said.He said this is because Filipinos love to serve ham, grilled pork belly, and roasted pig during the season. The PVO , in preparation for the influx of the demand for ham and other pork products this Christmas, recently conducted an inventory on the locally processed ham and pork products to ensure sufficiency of the supply.
