SAN JOSE, Antique – This province is hoping to boost its food security plan with the re-appointment of Gov. Rhodora Cadiao as chairperson of the Regional Development Council (RDC) from this year to 2022.
“The food security plan of the province entails projects such as improvement of the irrigation system and development of the airport and port,” Vice Gov. Edgar Denosta said on Monday.
Denosta with the capitol employees congratulated Cadiao, saying her re-appointment would mean more projects for the province.
“I congratulate the governor for her re-appointment as the chairperson of the most powerful council in the region,” Denosta said.
He added the improvement of the irrigation system in the province will ensure that farmers could produce sufficient rice while the development of the airport and port would make the transport of agricultural goods easier.
Cadiao took her oath as RDC chair before President Rodrigo Duterte in Malacañang last Oct. 28.
She first served as RDC chair from 2016-2019.
Meanwhile, Provincial Planning and Development officer Juliana Cepe said the province will host the first inaugural meeting of the RDC this month.(With a report from PNA/PN)
