BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 4 (PIA) –- In support to the Regional Development Plan of Caraga, the provincial government of Agusan del Norte will intensify the rehabilitation of the province’s infrastructure.
Provincial Planning and Development Office chief Rofel Cabaltera said this undertaking will provide a venue for the province to attract local and foreign investors.
Cabaltera said the provincial planning team has already conducted assessment to all municipalities of the province to identify and prioritize the infrastructure of each barangay that needs to be developed and rehabilitated.
“We have already conducted some sort of assessment to all barangays in the municipalities of the province to identify the needs of developing the infrastructure,” Cabaltera said in the vernacular.
The official further said municipalities that are in need of farm-to-market roads are those that will be prioritized.
“With farm-to-market roads, products of the farmers in the province will be brought easily to their respective markets for selling… Thus, this ensures improvement of the farmers’ income,” Cabaltera said.
Furthermore, Cabaltera said the project also aims to provide assistance to each local government unit in every municipality, especially in times of calamities and disasters. (PIA-Caraga)
