To strengthen partnership with local government units (LGUs), Agriculture Secretary William Dar met with the local chief executives of Bicol region on October 8, 2019 in Legazpi, Albay.

The meeting also aimed to identify counterpart programs and projects of the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the LGUs that will greatly enhance policy recommendations.

Dar also added that a strong partnership with the private sector must also be considered in designing DA’s programs and projects. With the intent to pursue massive agri industrialization, DA targets to enhance export development by linking Philippine agri products to national and global markets.
