Vast opportunities as well as challenges that face the trade sector have brought about the formation of a new organization which intends to not just uplift the sector but also allow more micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) to capitalize on the global market. The group, called the Philippine Export Service Providers and Consolidators Association Inc. (PESPCA), likewise intends to elevate the stature of locally-made products as a preferred brand, not just among Filipinos abroad, but also in the wider international marketplace. PESPCA was formally organized following the election of its officers and the holding of its first meeting last 2 July in Parañaque City. Elected were Tomas Medina as president, Jiten Lalwani as vice president, Michael Manalang as Secretariat, Brian Tan as Treasurer, and Angelo Reyes as Public Relations Officer. The new officers said they will prioritize pressing issues that face the export industry in the era of continuing pandemic, particularly its effects on shipping and logistics, container availability, freight rates, port congestion and verified gross mass.
