President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. said on Thursday, December 1, that he wants the Kadiwa ng Pasko project to become a national program through collaboration with local government units (LGUs) so that it can be implemented beyond the holiday season.

During his remarks at the Kadiwa ng Pasko caravan held in Quezon City, President Marcos lauded the city government for being the pioneer of the project, which went on to become a model for other LGUs in Metro Manila.

According to Marcos, the Kadiwa project reduced the prices of basic products, benefiting consumers while also providing a market for local agricultural producers and micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs).

President Marcos said that the government intends to reduce the price of rice per kilo to P25 through the implementation of the Kadiwa project. As a result, the administration has decided to roll out the program across the entire country of the Philippines.

The Kadiwa ng Pasko program aims to provide a market for local farmers' and fishermen's produce, as well as for small businesses selling basic necessities.

Organizers anticipate that they will earn more money while also providing the public with more accessible, affordable, and high-quality merchandise.

The project is supported by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD,  the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
