PGMA sets dinner with media, begins with Agribusiness Mindanao tour

Manila (16 February) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will host a dinner for media practitioners in Davao City and other parts of Mindanao on Tuesday, February 16, 2010.

The President, who is expected in the region will check on the status of the different infrastructure projects in Surigao and Davao.

The development of Mindanao takes high priority in the program of the current administration. In fact, Agribusiness Mindanao is one of the five Super Regions.

Through the media practitioners, the President hopes to inform the people of Mindanao and what her administration has accomplished in nine years.

The President's visit to Mindanao is the third leg of her Super Regions performance evaluation.

Under the Super Regions strategy, Mindanao's potential as the country's agribusiness center is being developed and harnessed through major infrastructure projects.

The President began her legacy tour two weeks ago with visits to the Cyber Corridor and the Urban Luzon Beltway.

She has yet to visit the North Luzon Agribusiness Triangle and Central Philippines Tourism Center super regions.

The Super Regions was first unveiled in her 2006 State-of-the-Nation Address. That time, she noted the importance of grouping selected regions and provinces by their economic strengths to stimulate economic growth and development and make the Philippines at par with its ASEAN neighbors.

Mindanao's competitive edge is agribusiness. It supplies 40 percent of the country's food requirements and contributes to more than 30 percent of the national food trade. (PIA) [top]
