Author: DA-AFID | 18 July 2023

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. witnessed the signing of the memorandum of agreement (MOA), which calls for the establishment of KADIWA ng Pangulo (KNP) in local government units (LGUs) nationwide during his visit in San Fernando City, Pampanga on July 17, 2023.

The agreement seeks to expand the KNP throughout the country to ensure food security, reinvigorate job creation, and accelerate poverty reduction.

The KNP is part of the government’s efforts in ensuring stable food supply as it enables farmers to sell directly to consumers by removing market layers. It also establishes additional markets for farmers, fisherfolks and micro enterprises to sell locally produced agri-fishery products and basic necessities. Through the initiative, fresh agricultural and fishery commodities become more accessible to consumers at affordable prices.  

The MOA signatories include the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), Department of Agriculture (DA), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Presidential Communications Office (PCO) and Presidential Management Staff (PMS). ###
