MAFAR joins 64th Araw ng Lanao del Sur Government Services Exhibit
LANAO DEL SUR – In commemoration of the 64th founding anniversary of Lanao del Sur, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Agrarian Reform (MAFAR) proudly participated in Lanao del Sur’s Government Services Exhibit with the theme “Bringing Public Service Closer to the People” held last July 17 to 21 in which the MAFAR brought home the 2nd runner-up for Best booth award.
The exhibit, held at the provincial Capitol Gym Marawi City, showcased the ministry’s commitment to advancing the agricultural sector and empowering local farmers, fisherfolk, and agrarian reform beneficiaries.
The ministry’s booth featured some of the MAFAR services, including the Provision of farm animal supplements, Free Farming Consultations, Provision of MAFAR Learning Materials, Legal assistance on Camp Keithley claimants or E0 75, and Fisheries Consultation on Aquaculture, Post-Harvest, Regulatory, and Law Enforcement.
Visitors were provided valuable insights into the latest farming techniques, opportunities for growth in the fishing industry, and a clear understanding of agrarian reform services.
A separate trade fair booth for MAFAR partner farmers was also organized by the MAFAR-AMAD to showcase some of their local produce, which includes the coffee produce of St. Mary of Downtown’s farmers who topped the recent Philippine Coffee Expo 2023.
According to Engr. Al-Arief P. Mangata, the Focal person for MAFAR-AMAD, the participation of MAFAR Lanao Del Sur in the Government Service Exhibit and trade fair booth has helped our partner farmers by providing them with a platform to showcase their products, connect with potential buyers, access new markets, and gain valuable insights into the latest agricultural technologies and practices, fostering growth and prosperity.
The inclusion of the MAFAR in the government services exhibit further underscores Lanao del Sur’s determination to create a sustainable and prosperous future for its residents, solidifying the province’s position as a potential hub of agricultural excellence in the region.
