Objectives: To develop and promote competitive tourism products and services To strengthen accessibility and connectivity to tourism destinations To generate investment, jobs and market opportunities in the tourism sector At this point, I would like to share with you the outputs and agreements made during the National Industry Cluster (NIC) Strategic Planning Workshop for the Tourism Support Industries: Wearables and Homestyle (W&H) / Processed Food (PF) which was held on November 11 to 12, 2014 at Harolds Hotel, Cebu City. In attendance were the NIC Coordinator and DTI VII, National GDH Cluster Head, and some 30 regional participants coming from the regions enrolled to the NIC. As a backgrounder, The DTI 7 realized during the implementation of NICCEP project that there is an undeveloped Souvenir Industry Sector in the regions. To address this problem, we proposed to improve the ability of local MSMEs to access market opportunities in the growing tourism industry. We strategized on how to grow the local Souvenir Industry by fostering deeper collaboration among players in the tourism cluster and by linking communities to the tourism cluster.

6 Tourism As Market Here is a global tourism value chain map.
Based on this map, we have developed our strategic directions which include : 1. Tourism cluster as Target Market for Products and Services (LInCs) 2. Development of a Souvenir Industry (Philippine GiFTS Program) 3. Increase the Productivity and Efficiency of MSMEs in the Tourism Value Chain 4. Improve access to finance 5. Improve the business enabling environment

In order to achieve our goal, we partnered with the Department of Tourism and our tourism players.

9 SWOT ANALYSIS (Souvenirs)
Strengths Availability of skilled and trainable manpower HACCP and HALAL certified food processors Strong LGU and national government agencies support Presence of strong sectoral organizations Convergence of public and private sectors Available raw materials Weaknesses Poor access to credit Lack of accredited tourism establishments Lack of compliance to food safety standards Poor network between tourism related industries and support industries Lack of knowledge of the market Lack of pasalubong centers and souvenir shops Upgrading of facilities and services is not a priority Lack of competency to develop new or innovate existing tourism products MSMEs lack the capacity to produce on a larger scale/low productivity Opportunities Increasing market opportunities for local souvenirs Presence of government support programs Growing demand for organic rice Increasing market for green products Online marketing opportunities Shared Service Facilities Increasing investments MICE Threats Competition and substitute products from other provinces, regions, countries pose a local threat to local souvenir industry No proper waste disposal or treatment facility Lack of enforcement of tourism policies and laws Environmental degradation Weather disturbances Excessive collection fees Here is our SWOT Analysis for souvenirs. During the workshop, two NIC Team-steered programs / projects were developed, namely : 1) the DTI activities, possibly showcases / trade fairs in five focal areas – Boracay, Cebu, Iloilo, Legaspi and Manila, around the APEC Year 2015 meetings and events and, 2) the Travel Retail Program which takes advantage of the fast growing travel retail market in the Philippines. This program includes Product Development, Branding, Upcycling and Green Products initiatives. Stakeholders shall anchor efforts on ongoing initiatives.(RD Aster Caberte with possibly RD Joy Blanco to meet with Mr Butch Carungay to brainstorm and develop a workable concept for this program. ) 3) the Green Business Practices Promotion, was also accepted but only to be embedded within the other two programs / projects.
