Davao bizmen sets up Date 2016 with millennials
The Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (DCCCII) is organizing the Davao Agri-Trade Expo (Date) 2016 on Sept. 22-24 to entice the younger generation to pursue farming as a business instead of becoming someone’s employee.
Date 2016 will take place at the SMX Convention Center, SM Lanang Premier, Davao City.
Sunstar reported the DCCCII seeks to lure more youth into farming with Mindanao’s golden crops such as cacao, coffee, coconut, cassava, corn and rice.
Success stories of champion farmers will also be presented.
The DCCCII wants to encourage more young people to venture into farming in view of the declining number of farmers in the country.
