Plaza, together with LGU officials and department heads, paid a courtesy visit and presented the Carmen Sustainable Agro-forestry and Agro-Industrial Development Program (CaSAAD) to Provincial Governor Alexander T. Pimentel on February 1, 2023, at the Provincial Governor’s Office, Capitol, Tandag City.

Mayor Plaza led the team and discuss the framework of the CaSAAD program of the LGU and  formally asked for support and commitment from the provincial governor, with the presence of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAg) chief Marcos Quico.

In the presentation, the CaSAAD Program will serve as the LGU's key strategy in realizing the vision of becoming the agro-industrial hub in the province through the promotion of agro-forestry in all upland areas and the number of hectares expected to develop. The agro-industrial projects including the establishment of either abaca or bamboo industry are among the priorities mentioned in the program presented.

Accordingly, three major development goals were presented by the LGU. These are the reduction of poverty, generating employment for its constituents, and ensuring the sustainability of its forest resources within the LGU. 

Lastly, the Local Chief Executive and team expressed their gratitude to the governor and OPag chief for their commitment and unending support for the people of Carmen and the sustainable development of the LGU. (NGPB/with a report from LGU-Carmen/PIA-Surigao del Sur)
