Coconut industry gets boost with a reg'l office for north Luzon

STA, BARBARA, Pangasinan, Aug. 29 (PIA) - The Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) aims to boost the coconut industry with the establishment of a regional office in this town that will cover four regions in north Luzon.

Regional Manager Dennis Andres said the regional office will cover Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), and Regions 1 (Ilocos), 2 (Cagayan Valley) and 3 (Central Luzon) which aims  to promote the planting of coconuts and also advance it as an important economic and valuable industry, which will address food security.

“Magandang adhikain na ma-base kami para mas mapalapit ang PCA sa mga coconut farmers natin at sa sinumang interesado na magtanim ng niyog,” Andres said in his speech on Tuesday during the National Coconut Month celebration program.

Andres noticed that many Pangasineses and Ilocanos  sell coconut but import it from as far as Bicol, Aurora and Quezon province and this is one situation that PCA would like to address.

In Pangasinan, the main sources of coconut are the towns of Bolinao,  Anda and Aguilar.

The supply is, however, low and could only meet a fraction of the demand.

“Bakit manggagaling pa ang buko sa labas ng ating rehiyon kung pwede naman tayong magtanim ng magagandang varieties ng coconut dito,” he explained.

Andres added that PCA is also in talks with the provincial government and local government units to come up with a comprehensive plan for the development of the coconut industry in the province.

For his part, Sta. Barbara Mayor Joel Delos Santos thanked the  institutions used by the government to help the lives and livelihood of his town and provincemates  in this time of pandemic.

“Huwag tayong magsawang magtanim ng magtanim dahil malaki ang magiging tulong nito sa ating lahat,” Delos Santos said. 

Part of the celebration of the Coconut Month is the staging of the "Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita" which  aims to show to the people that through the planting of coconut, they  could derive 1,001 products.

Meanwhile, PCA also held a virtual  forum on Thursday for all stakeholders in north Luzon where opportunities and direction setting for the coconut industry were discussed.

PCA Administrator Benjamin Madrigal said aside from raising the income of the region’s coconut farmers, the production of coconut-based products, such as virgin coconut oil and coco ethyl alcohol, would complement the continuing fight against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

“The coconut ethyl alcohol  has an immune boosting capacity, namamatay ang virus because it has lauric acid that destroys the lipid membrane of the virus,” Madrigal  said in the virtual forum.

He urged the stakeholders who attended to heighten people’s awareness and appreciation for the coconut industry’s promising contribution to the country’s economy and people’s well-being. (JCR/AMB/VHS/PIA Pangasinan)

Why are Filipinos known for their lack of reading comprehension?

Because according to most of them: "Well-mannered is better than well-educated" That's why most of the Filipinos never progress. It is because of the trash mindset.

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.

Isang Pasasalamat

Sabi nila: “There’s always something to be thankful for.” Kaya ako din may sasabihin! 🤣✌️ Isang pasasalamat! 💗 Sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa akin, maraming salamat po. Sa mga pagtulong sa akin, kahit hindi ko sinasabi, pero ginagawa pa rin, Thank you. Hindi ko man nasasabi personally pero taos puso ang pasasalamat ko sa inyo. Alam kong alam niyo na kung sino kayo. Isa na lang mahihiling ko talaga, ang mapanatili ang genuine and lasting friendship na nabuo natin. 💗 Kung may nasaktan o na-offend ako dahil sa mga paniniwala o pangbubully ko. Humihingi ako ng paumanhin. Kung isa ka sa ma-ooffend ko pa lang. Humihingi na ako agad ng paumanhin. Dahil din sa inyo, may natutunan at matututunan ako. Kung isa ka sa mga nagsasabing suplado ako, pasensiya na. Nagkakamali po kayo. =) Sa mga napasaya ko kahit paano, maraming salamat. Kayo ang magiging inspirasyon ko na ipagpatuloy ang paglaban ng taas noo at ngiting tagos hanggang puso sa darating pang mga taon. Sa mga nakakamiss sa akin,
