Small and medium enterprises from the Cordillera region registered P66.57 million in cash and booked sales in a recent trade fair, with some manufacturers running out of goods to sell before even displaying their products.

According to data from the Department of Trade and Industry, the recent Impakabsat 2011 trade fair generated P16.86 million in cash sales during the fair, plus P48.48 million in booked orders. Transactions that were still under negotiation amounted to P236,060.
