Design Excellence and Innovation at CITEM’s Design for Exports Program

“CITEM’s Design for Exports program is just one more example of DESIGN PHILIPPINES at work. This movement, under the auspices of CITEM, nurtures and celebrates cutting edge product design making Manila FAME Asia’s leader in Design.”

James R. Booth, Project Director, Manila FAME

As the country’s pillar for design excellence and product innovation, the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), the export marketing arm of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), continues its mission to bring constant reinvention of high quality and design-forward products through its Design for Exports Program.

Designers working for the Design for Exports Program are Eric Paras, Inigo Elizalde, Ito Kish, Jinggoy Buensuceso, Leeroy New, Luisa Robinson, Olivia d’Aboville, Vito Selma, and Wataru Sakuma. These experts will lend their creative expertise in providing the participating companies with technical assistance to help stir interest and stimulate demand for Philippine products in the international trade scene and help establish the country as Asia’s go-to design destination.
