The simple turnover ceremony with Regional Program Coordination Office (RPCO) staff members held January 7 at DA-XI Conference room.

Director Corpuz who will be the DPD in concurent capacity as DA-XI RTD for Operations says DA should heed the call of President Duterte to step up its efforts to further improve the plight of our farmers and fishers.

She says PRDP is one platform that can help improve the delivery of agri- fisheries services through its science-based tools such as geo-tagging and value chain analyses. "Infrastructure and enterprise development projects on the hand could help boost farmers' and fishers' income, " she adds.

Meanwhile, Ms. Orbe will now serve as the head of -IPLAN component of RPCO XI in addition to her regular function as DA-XI Planning Chief.
