LIGAO CITY –– As extended enhanced community quarantine was still observed in Albay province due to coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Department of Trade and Industry and the city government of Ligao have set up rolling stores in the province.

Bhem Berango, information officer of DTI, said the objective of the “Diskwento Caravan” project, which was initiated by DTI Albay, was to “ease the burden of consumers during this difficult time by providing them easy access to basic goods at reduced prices.”
