According to Dar, the partnership exemplifies the synergy between educational institutions and the national agencies towards nation-building.

“This is a big step in our efforts to engage the youth in transforming Philippine agriculture,” he said.

The Secretary expressed his appreciation to APC for initiating and supporting youth-oriented programs and its commitment to bringing data-driven digital technology to the country’s food systems.

Under the partnership, the APC will provide technical expertise, specialized education, and training programs to DA personnel to strengthen the Department’s information technology development program.
