Ifugao town holds "Boge ad Viewpoint"
by PIA–Ifugao

BANAUE, Ifugao – About a hundred individuals from government and non-government organizations joined the ceremonial “Boge ad Viewpoint” (rice planting) at the Aguian View Deck at Barangay Viewpoint.

The annual event that signals the start of the planting season in this municipality was organized by the municipal government and Barangay Viewpoint in collaboration with Universal Harvester Inc. (UHI) and rice terraces restoration volunteers in the community.

Mayor Jerry Dalipog said that the “Boge ad Viewpoint” is part of the many endeavors that the local government is conducting to promote the town’s tourism industry and for the restoration of the Banaue Rice Terraces.

“It was started many years ago with the municipal government as the financing institution only. It later gained support when it was promoted through the media from various stakeholders like the Universal Harvester Inc.,” the mayor said.

Dalipog said that in 2017, the UHI through its Executive Vice President Milagros Ong-How supported the conduct of the event and provided an initial funding of P3 million through a project proposal for Banaue Rice Terraces restoration.

He added that through the help of other government agencies and personalities, P200M was allocated in the General Appropriation Act for the restoration of the BRT to be implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways, Department of Agriculture, and Department of Tourism.

Retired brigadier general Ramon Yogyog, UHI coordinator, lauded all the participants of the “Boge ad Viewpoint” especially the uniformed personnel.

He reiterated UHI’s willingness to partner with the community for the restoration of the rice terraces in the province especially in Banaue and urged everyone to support by joining the bandwagon of Rice Terraces Restoration volunteers.

“We, the elders, must find ways to encourage the younger generation to join us in restoring our heritage sites and a formula that will balance not only the business stakeholders but also the farm owners who will gain from the support and improvements that are forthcoming,” Yogyog said.
