BAMBANG, Nueva Vizcaya, July 8 (PIA) - The provincial government will be funding the construction of an access road at barangay San Antonio South here that will boost the agro-tourism potentials of this town.
The Farm - to - Market Road (FMR) will improve the access of villagers and local and international tourists to the Integrated Agro-Tourism and Learning Site (IATLS) at barangay San Antonio South.
The FMR project which was highlighted in a recent groundbreaking program led by Governor Carlos Padilla, Mayor Pepito Balgos and several town councilors was funded through the Grants and Aids of Padilla.
"This access road will be constructed not only for farmers but for others who are interested to engage in agro-tourism. This is to show that agriculture is more important," Padilla said.
He added that the IATLS is an advantage of the province considering that it will also generate jobs and create tourism activities once the COVID-19 pandemic is gone.
Padilla also relayed the provincial government's plan to bring back the economy of the province into full swing by implementing the COVID-19 Recovery Plan that will be participated by the 15 local government units in the province.
"We will venture into more road development project so that our road networks will be fully interconnected to enable our farmers to bring down their products faster and with ease in various markets," he said. (MDCT/BME/PIA 2-Nueva Vizcaya)
