Canales added that the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program is a means to jumpstart economic development particularly in rural areas, with the landowners playing a crucial role in facilitating investments and development.

The forum was attended by 40 landowners, with representatives from the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPA), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), and private entrepreneurs as resource speakers.

Resource Speakers Director Desiderio Belas of DTI and Joji Esplanada of OPA presented to the landowner-participants their respective agri-productivity programs and services.
