Author: DA-AFID | 9 October 2019

Agriculture Secretary William Dar was able to secure the support and commitment of the local government units of Bicol to work with the national government to address hunger and poverty.

During a meeting held on October 8, 2019, the DA and the LGUs of Bicolandia were able to identify programs and projects that need policy recommendations, which the two parties can implement together.

The agri chief cited that during the budget presentation at the House of Representatives, the Department of Agriculture received overwhelming support from the minority house.

The Secretary explained that the legislative support is vital in developing Philippine agriculture.

“This, and a strong partnership with private sectors must also be considered in designing DA’s programs and projects,” he added. (Photos by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
