“Hablon sa Cebu is a very tangible example of innovation… with appropriate and non-invasive technologies to adapt to changing landscapes without compromising cultural values,” CTU Director for Extension Services Jorelyn Concepcion shared to Internationalization and ASEAN Integration Office, in a statement, which explained why she was one of the two presenters at the workshop in Vietnam on October 2 to 4.
Dr. Conception’s contribution on “Trends in the Development of Traditional Craft Villages in the Industry 4.0” listened to by representatives from 18 countries zeroed in on the development of Southern Cebu’s tradition, handloom weaving, which has found place even in today’s industrialized landscape not to mention elite societies in London.
The talk had bearing on how the CTU shared-service facility has impacted not only the economic growth of the province and the attitude of the locals in keeping in touch with a distinct way of life in general, but also the perspective of industries in coping with UN’s sustainable development goals.
Her attendance was sponsored by the Asian Productivity Organization (APO) and endorsed by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) and Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP). IAI/UICP
