Caraga AMAD conducts agribusiness coordinators meeting

by Aurell P. Arais

Butuan City (23 February) -- To spur the economic growth in Caraga Region through agribusiness, the Agribusiness Marketing and Assistance Division (AMAD) of the Department of Agriculture Regional Field Unit 13 (DA-RFU 13) conducted recently an agribusiness coordinators meeting.

The meeting took place at 3rd floor DA Conference Hall, Capitol Site, this city and presided by Servilla Balaan, AMAD officer in charge.

Participants of the meeting were the agribusiness coordinators in provincial and city level within Caraga Region.

In order for the participants to fully appreciate the purpose of the meeting, Malu Gruyal, an AMAD staff gives the overview of the meeting since this was the first meeting for the year 2009.

OIC Balaan presented the work plan of AMAD for the calendar year 2009 to serve as guide for agribusiness coordinators to integrate their respective plan on their locality for the whole year.

Highlight of the meeting was the commitment of each participant to fully support and work closely with the operators of the Barangay Bagsakan and Bagsakan Centers (BB/BC) established in the region.

Balaan revealed that in general, operation of BB/BC in Caraga Region is working well but some showed decline on sales due to limited supply of products to be sold especially on meat products.

Agribusiness coordinators pledged to look into the matter and work with the respective operators to help find the solutions on every obstacle encountered during the operation.

Before the meeting adjourned, the group decided to conduct their meeting on a quarterly basis for a better monitoring and stronger working relationship with each other. (RAFID-DA-13/ PIA-Caraga) [top]
