Senator Cynthia Villar dubbed an agriculture summit hosted by the Quezon provincial government ‘not an ordinary fiesta.’

Villar was the guest of honor at the, STAARRDEC-FIESTA 2018 which stands for Southern Tagalog Agriculture, Aquatic and Resources, Research, Development and Extension Consortium-Farms and Industry Encounters through the Science and Technology Agenda.

“This is not an ordinary fiesta of merry-making, but this event is an opportunity for us to invest in research and development to fast-track agricultural development to help our farming community,” Villar said.

She lamented how the Filipino farmers are often the ones who cannot afford to feed their families.

“Let’s continue to find ways to support our agricultural development sector and let’s learn development models to apply to our lives and livelihoods,” Villar said.
