Isabela City Mayor Sitti Djalia Turabin-Hataman conferred with Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) chair Sec. Maria Belen Acosta and Deputy Executive Director ASec. Romeo Montenegro, January 18, for the participation of MinDA in the upcoming Isabela City Agriculture Summit. MinDA is the lead government agency mandated to promote, coordinate and facilitate the active and extensive participation of all sectors to effect socioeconomic development of Mindanao.
The first ever Isabela City Agriculture Summit, slated on March 16, aims to gather various stakeholders—from farmers to agri-entrepreneurs—to generate ideas and solutions to buttress the role of agriculture in the local economy.
Mayor Turabin-Hataman welcomed the partnership as additional reason to provide a renewed interest in unlocking the tremendous potential of agriculture to energize Isabela City’s business climate and empower its communities.
Joining the local chief executive in the said meeting were City Administrator and concurrent City Legal Officer Atty. Adzlan Imran and City Planning and Development Coordinator Engr. Gay Palagtiosa. (Words by M. Guerrero, CIO/Photos by ML Esturco, PESO)
