Agriculture Secretary William Dar led the capsule laying and groundbreaking ceremony for the Monolithic Dome in Roxas, Zamboanga del Norte (ZDN) on February 26, 2021, which seeks to transform the 52-hectare land area into an Agri-Industrial Business Corridor (ABC).

The Department of Agriculture (DA), under the leadership of Secretary Dar, campaigns for the institution of ABCs in strategic locations across the nation as part of the government’s holistic approach to integrate smallholder farmers by providing them access to resources, including state-of-the-art production technology, capital, and value-adding facilities.

The monolithic dome, expected to be completed on June 15, 2021, will serve as the province’s chilled storage and packing facility.

Joining the Secretary during the ceremony were Asec Noel Reyes, ZDN Governor Roberto Uy, Vice Governor Senen Angeles, ZDN Second District Rep. Glona Labadlabad, RTD Melba Wee, RTD Ferdinand Gamorot, Director Rad Donn Centeno, Former Dipolog Mayor Evelyn Uy, BFAR 9 Director Isidro Velayo, GM Jenelyn Yuson of Dazzling Lite Enterprises (contractor), and officials from the DA’s central and regional offices.
