CFIP President Arnulfo M. Milambiling says better transport infrastructure and shared production facilities are essential to support the furniture businesses, during an interview by Bruce Rodriguez from ABS-CBN News Channel. Mr. Milambiling is the proprietor of an export furniture company, Contemporaneo, Inc., who is among the remaining furniture exporting companies in the Philippines.
Through DTI Export Marketing Bureau the government supports the furniture sector through business matching opportunities open for furniture and furnishings businesses owners.
Currently, local sales sustain the industry. Mr. Milambiling says we further need support by investors–be it Filipino or foreign–to tap the export markets and grow the industry.
