As part of its Bamboo Development Program, the Department of Trade & Industry turned over some P146,000 worth of machinery and tools to Buglas Bamboo Institute in Maayong-tubig, Dauin.

The machinery included a rip saw, drill press, side press, electric sander, and some power tools.

In the fourth quarter of last year, Buglas Bamboo Institute was also the recipient of skill trainings which included Safety in the Workplace, Basic Woodworking & Carpentry, and Jig Making.

One of the components of the Bamboo Development Program is to supply the Department of Education with bamboo desks, chairs, and teacher’s tables so the grant will boost the capability of Buglas Bamboo to supply schools especially ‘in Negros Oriental using engineered bamboo.

After the turnover, a Memorandum of Agreement was signed between DTI and Buglas Bamboo Institute. Messages of support were given by DTI 7 Regional Director Asteria Caberte and Dr. Emigdio Omictin representing the DepEd City Schools Division Office.

Buglas Bamboo is headed by the father-son team of Frans and Jobert Koerkamp. (DTI PR)
