The Department of Trade and Industry’s flagship project Diskwento Caravan will be going to key cities across the country this May 15 onwards, with school supplies and basic goods available at deeply discounted prices.

A variety of products will be available at Diskwento Caravan, including school supplies, school uniforms, kid’s leather shoes and school bags, canned goods, processed meat, bread, cooking oil and detergent soaps. MSME Corner will feature local products made by micro, small, and medium entrepreneurs.

Other government agencies will join the Diskwento Caravan to offer frontline services such as the TESDA for free haircut, National Statistics Office (NSO), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), and Social Security System (SSS).
