Said Congress was a collaborative effort between the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) that aimed at strengthening the partnership among coconut organizations in order to create a strong marketing niche of copra for biodiesel production that will ensure the welfare of coconut farmers by increasing their farm income. Likewise, to call for a strong government support for the welfare of the coconut farmers engaged in copra and biodiesel production.
