DA launches support program
by Erwin S. Batnag

BONTOC, Mountain Province – The Department of Agriculture in partnership with the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist introduced the Agribusiness Support for Promotion and Investment in Regional Expositions (Aspire) Program to local farmers during a forum last April 3.

Aspire is an agribusiness and marketing program of the DA that aims to integrate market development support services to farmers, fisherfolks, micro, small, and medium enterprises and other stakeholders.

DA-CAR Chief of the Agri-Business and Marketing Assistance Division Jerry Damoyan said Aspire intends to develop the capacity of local farmers/fisherfolks and MSMEs to optimize market opportunities by building a strong partnership and convergence with other government and private sector industry group. This is aligned with the DA’s commitment to make food available and increase the income of farmers.

“Through Aspire’s components, we prioritize the promotion of regional commodities, and agri/fishery-based products to showcase strong backward linkages with farmers and fisherfolk,” Damoyan said.

The four driving components of Aspire are production support, enterprise development and industry support, agribusiness investments and promotions, and market promotion and development.

Acting Governor Bonifacio C. Lacwasan, Jr., who attended the opening of the activity, thanked the DA for bringing projects and programs that are essential for the overall improvement of the province.

“This event is an avenue for our local farmers to learn on ways to improve the productivity and marketability of their products,” Lacwasan said while assuring the full support of the provincial government to the different programs of the DA in Mountain Province.

On the same occasion, awards were given to the winners of the Mountain Province Outstanding Farmers for 2017.

There were also lectures on wine making and processing of other products, and  on intellectual property rights registration during the event.
