by Daniel B. Codamon / PIA

LAGAWE, Ifugao – The Provincial Planning and Development Office spearheaded a three-day economic development planning workshop to representatives of municipal and provincial government, provincial government offices, non-government organizations, Department of Trade and Industry and Department of Science and Technology.

The workshop aims to capacitate stakeholders to enable local government units come up with six-year local enterprise development plans that are holistic, sustainable and coordinated among all stakeholders.

Provincial Planning and Development coordinator Carmelita Buyuccan explained that since it is at the local level where the greatest potentials for spurring development exists, the role of local government units in development has expanded especially with the decentralization of various powers and functions under the Local Government Code of 1991. 

She said LGUs are now viewed not as just providers of basic social services but also as promoters of local economic development.

Buyuccan said the Provincial Commodity Investment Plan has identified heirloom rice, coffee and cardaba or banana as the crops that could potentially spur economic development in the province because of their high production volume, climate resiliency, number of farmers or producers involved and their marketability.

She said prioritization of these crops sets into motion the converging of support from the different agencies in order to improve production.

The workshop  helped  stakeholders  understand the economy of the province. It was also a venue where the participants were able to analyze the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats of the local economy.

The workshop also integrated economic development in local government processes, identified the goals and objectives of local economic development  plans, and the mandates and other related laws of the local government in relation to the establishment of economic development.
