Int’l Bazaar 2022’s return triumphant
THE International Bazaar made a triumphant return after a two-year hiatus on November 20, 2022 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City.
Featuring over more than 100 booths and representing 42 countries, the International Bazaar 2022 is a collaborative effort among the International Bazaar Foundation (IBF) the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Spouses of Heads of Mission (SHOM), and private product exhibitors.
“It is very fitting that we gather here in the World Trade Center Metro Manila ‘Where the World Comes to Shop’ bringing together shoppers and exhibitors from across the globe. The variety of goods and products under one roof is what makes this occasion truly special. With more than forty participating countries, the International Bazaar represents both the diversity and solidarity within our diplomatic community,” IBF Chairperson Mme. Pamela Louise Manalo said in her welcome remarks.
Proceeds will go towards the programs and projects of IBF and SHOM, including scholarships, livelihood assistance, and other charitable activities.
“At the heart of it, the International Bazaar is held for a noble cause: to give to those who are in need,” Mme. Manalo further said.
The Guest of Honor, Senator Loren Legarda, commended and expressed firm support for the Bazaar as it serves as a platform for exhibitors to promote their world class products.
The Senator stressed the key role of MSMEs in the Philippine economy and local communities, and encouraged more support for them. Aside from products, the International Bazaar 2022 featured cultural performances by the Philippine Baranggay Folk Dance Troupe, and some of the participating embassies.
There were also booths that offered culinary delights to the visitors of the International Bazaar 2022.
