The Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM) officially announced its newly-appointed executive director, Pauline Suaco-Juan, last August 10. Pauline, who took her oath of office on the same day, was Preview's editor-in-chief for 14 years until she stepped down in 2016.
Being an agency under the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Pauline will now be part of the CITEM's efforts to expand the country's export growth in the global market. Welcoming her new role, Pauline says, "I come to you [CITEM] with a fashion pedigree. But I know that at the very heart of it all, I am excited, you are excited, and I know that you are committed to showcase the Filipino talent to the rest of the world. Let’s do it all together."
