Maximum of 5 nominee-delegates will be sent to the island group level.

Callorina of PSU-MPC, Ms. Nenita A. Tabangay of Provincial Agriculturist Office, and Ms. Frauline B. Castillo of Provincial Agriculture and Fishery Council.

Department of Agriculture-PCA Administrator Benjamin Madrigal, Jr. said that “We encourage our coconut farmers, as the direct beneficiaries of RA 11524, to ensure that they participate in the consultation and more particularly, in the nomination process – to ensure that we get the most qualified farmer-representatives,”.
