DTI Sec : Garments exporters to produce 10k PPEs a day




We protect are own.
That seems to be the underlying motto that our garment exporters are having when recently they decided and announced that they will pioneer the local production of medical-grade personal protective equipment(PPE) coverall after the Holy Week.

According to the Board of Investments(BOI) that member -companies of the Confederation of Wearable Exporters of the Philippines (Conwep) can produce 10,000 medical-grade coveralls daily.

The BOI further explains that the design which will be used for the PPE was approved by the Department of Health and the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) to ensure that the PPE meet the standard — attaining a certain level of waterproofing and resistant to contaminants.
Both government and the private sector will collaborate to produced the Philippine-made PPE, this according to Department of Trade Investments (DTI) Secretary Ramon Lopez.
“We need to protect our healthcare workers as they are in the frontline of our fight against Covid-19. With PPEs in short supply globally, the government and private sector have collaborated closely to locally produce these critical items needed to protect those who are protecting us against the virus,” said Lopez, who is also the BOI chairman.

BOI said Conwep was able to import raw materials for the PPE local production, which will be shipped this coming April 9.
“We have to complement the production capacity of Conwep with financial resources, which lie elsewhere in the private sector,” Lopez said.
Ramon Ang’s, San Miguel Corporation (SMC) has committed to buy the initial 10,000 PPE coveralls that it will donate to PGH.
Secretary Lopez also encourages other business groups to support Conwep’s project.
