DAR turns over Php40.6-M first marketing center in Region 1

balita-phMANILA, Dec. 1 — The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently turned over the first Provincial Agrarian Reform Information & Marketing Center (AIM-C) amounting to Php40.6 million in Region I in Barangay Don Dimas Querubin in Caoayan, Ilocos Sur to serve as marketing arm of farmers’ cooperatives in the province.



Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer (PARPO) Christianne C. Suguitan said the AIM-C is funded byDAR thru the Japan International Coordinating Agency (JICA) under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project (ARISP) Phase III, the Nueva Segovia Consortium of Cooperatives (NSCC) and local government of Caoayan.

Suguitan said the facility is the answer to the farmers’ problem of having only marginal income from the sales of their produce to traders.

She added the AIM-C building would also cater the agri-extension services and training needs of ARBs in the area.

Caoayan Mayor Germelina Goulart expressed her appreciation in behalf of her constituents for all the projects that DAR has implemented in her area.

She reiterated that the farmers are the government’s “kakinnibin” ( partner) in the development and progress of the municipality, thus enabling the AIM-C to achieve its purpose.

Suguitan is confident that with the support of LGU Caoayan and the capability of NSCC to manage the AIM-C, the facility will be utilized efficiently.

The Assistant National Project Manager of ARISP III, Mr. Henry Zapata, lauded DAR, LGU-Caoayan and NSCCfor supporting AIM-C and expressed hope for its successful operation.

Mrs. Divina Quemi, CEO of NSCC, in her acceptance speech, thanked DAR for the project, particularly Engr. Yuhiro Sekiguchi, the ARISP III Japanese Consultant, for his unwavering belief in NSCC and to Suguitan for her full support to the implementation and completion of the project.

She also thanked Mayor Goulart who is equally supportive to all the projects of the NSCC.

In the said event, Vice Governor DV Savellano said “a beautiful building and facility must be properly utilized to serve its purpose.

He then distributed the “Ryan” corn to the farmers in Caoayan, Ilocos Sur as another kind of assistance. (PNA)
