The Department of Trade & Industry set its first National Price Coordinating Council (NPCC) Meeting for the year on 1/22/16 at the Conference Room Penthouse of the Board of Investments Building. NPCC Chairman, newly-appointed Secretary of DTI Adrian Cristobal, Jr., headed the Meeting which he used to handle as Usec. with then-DTI Sec. Manuel A. Roxas II. The Session introduced the new Secretary to the Members of the Council as well as dealt with Usec.

Teodoro. Close-up of the people at the Head Table (L-R) shows Director Danilo B.
