Kalinga PAFC submits P5M project proposal to Malacanang

by L. Lopez

Tabuk City, Kalinga (7 November) -- Aimed to boost agricultural production in the province, the Provincial Agriculture and Fisheries Council (PAFC) submitted last week a P5 million agricultural production support proposal to Malacanang.

Farmers drafted the support facility package during the two-day Agriculture and Fisheries Council Congress here, attended by 95 sectoral PAFC members.

National Agriculture and Fisheries Council (NAFC) representatives Lawrence Macaraig and Soledad Bernardo hand-carried the proposal to Department of Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap.

Government has readied P5.5B fund to food production under its Food Security Program, making the country sufficient in rice by 2010.

In the two-day congress, farmers raised pressing issues on expansion of more irrigation systems to water new rice lands in the province, opening of new farm-market-roads, and additional dryers since average harvest is getting higher.

Macaraig and Bernardo gave weights on the plea of the PAFC considering that its membership comes mostly from the private sector. We are moved by the issues and concerns of the council as we see the booming agriculture industry of Kalinga and we assure that your clamor will not be shelved but reach the proper people in Malacanang, the two said.

They noted the large participation, saying it is one of the most represented PAFC congress they have covered throughout the country.

PAFC is composed of the sectors on rice, corn, vegetable, fisheries, livestock, youth, women, business and finance institutions. (PIA Kalinga) [top]
