The simple ceremony signifies the start of the collaboration between DA and the provincial local government unit in extending support and assistance to farmers and fishers at the grassroot level.

In his message, the DA chief announced that a total of P1.5 billion in funds have been allotted for the development and enhancement of the local agri-fishery sector in the province, with assistance from the DA, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, and the Philippine Rural Development Project.
