Recently the group concluded a deal with the Department of Agriculture to help Bangsamoro traders uplift their economic situation.

In 2017, I joined the just formed first Bangsamoro business group founded by now Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Undersecretary Abdulgani Macatoman and RDO Nasraili Conding, the group president.

The high profile business community was created as frontliners to deal with the country’s businessmen in highlighting the contribution of the Muslim traders and uplifting their economic situation.

We aimed also to enhance and promote business coordination and networks with both local and international investors. Attended and took part in top business leaders talks and gathering in the capital.
