DA’s ASPIRE to cover all regions by 2018
The government’s Agribusiness Support for Promotion and Investment in Regional Expo (ASPIRE) will cover all regions in the country by next year after the event successfully took place recently in Region 12.
“ASPIRE is in line with the marketing support of the DA (Department of Agriculture) to our farmers and fisherfolks… Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol aims to continue to strengthen them as agripreneurs,” said Regional Executive Director Engr. Milagros Casis.
Casis also stressed out that this undertaking will uplift the agribusiness sector in all regions and will open more opportunities to farmer and fisherfolk entrepreneurs.
This initiative is likewise aimed at integrating market development support services to farmers, fisherfolk, Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) and other stakeholders.
As part of the program, technical sessions will be conducted regarding International Market Trends, Microfinancing Programs, Entrepreneurial Mindsetting, and Overview to Value Chain.
