Re-elected Governor Imelda “Angging” Dimaporo said that she will prioritize programs and projects for health, employment and agriculture in the province.
“Hopefully in my last term madungangan ang mga income base sa agrikultura sa among panginabuhi sa among lalawigan pinaagi usab sa employment,” she said during an episode of Network Briefing News.
[Hopefully in my last term we will increase the income based on agriculture as the source of livelihood in our province and through employment also.]
The Governor also hopes that investors will be interested to implement business in terms of planting coffee, cacao, and corn in the province which has fertile land.
Dimaporo said that there has been a huge development in the province as there have been investors coming in. According to her, this provides opportunities for the residents as they no longer need to go to other neighboring cities or other places to look for jobs since there are opportunities already in the province.
Moreover, Dimaporo also underscored the importance of the construction of Panguil Bay Bridge. She said that this will bring more opportunities to the province as more investors will come in. She is also grateful to President Rodrigo Duterte for fulfilling their dream after more than 30 years of lobbying it.
In terms of response to the pandemic, Dimaporo also shared that the provincial government established and managed a COVID-19 Testing Laboratory which is the only Molecular Biology Laboratory in Northern Mindanao solely financed by the Provincial Government. She also looks forward to upgrading it into an infectious laboratory.
With regards to the tourism development, the Governor invites the public to visit some tourist spots in the province such as Tinago Falls in Linamon town, Jardin de Rachma in Magsaysay town, and Bungi Cave in Bacolod town, among others.
