Vigan City, Ilocos Sur (9 October) -- In another report the Provincial Office of the DA in cooperation with the provincial government of Ilocos Sur led by Governor Luis "Chavit" Singson held a screening test last Thursday at the Provincial Capitol for the seven qualified examinees for an agriculture scholarship in Japan.
Mr Quintal said that the scholars shall study in Japan for nine months and undergo one month training in the country, and afterwards, apply what they learned in their respective municipalities. This program aims to improve agriculture in all the municipalities of the province to meet the demands of the future and eventually, global competition. (PIA Vigan) [top]
