Agriculture Secretary William D. Dar and Governor Arthur C. Yap signed the agreement for the implementation of the Province-led Agriculture and Fisheries Extension System (PAFES) in the province of Bohol on February 7, 2022.

PAFES seeks to strengthen collaborative activities of the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the provincial local government unit (PLGU) towards a better and highly-competitive Philippine agriculture.

Under the agreement, the Bohol PLGU will serve as the extension hub of DA that will synchronize the plans and programs of stakeholders. It will also take the lead in the implementation and institutionalization of various projects for the development of the provincial agriculture sector. DA will co-plan, co-invest, and co-monitor the agri-fishery undertakings prioritized by the province specifically on specific commodities that show the most potential.
