Paggabao was invited as the Guest Speaker and CPD Chief Rowena F. Mayangat served as chairperson of the panel of judges for the Search for the Best Agro-Tourism Booth on 18 April 2024.

In his message, PD Paggabao expressed his gratitude to the LGU led by Mayor Neil Magaway for inviting him to one of the municipality’s momentous occasions.

“This is a call for all of us to recognize the immense potential of our agricultural sector and the pivotal role of our farmers and MSMEs within it. Let us work together to break barriers, foster innovation, and empower our agricultural entrepreneurs to thrive and contribute to a sustainable, inclusive economy,” PD Paggabao said as he emphasized how the Agro Trade Fair served as a platform where innovation and agriculture came together.

Aside from the town’s unique products and produce, the fair also highlighted Dupax del Sur’s tourist attractions, from the Saint Vincent Ferrer Parish to the different falls in which the town takes great pride.

After joining the opening of the Agro-Trade Fair and judging the booths, the team also visited The Green Oasis of Dupax, a budding venture in the food industry known for the unique farm-to-table dining experience that they provide to their customers.
