Vice President Leni Robredo has graced the opening of a agribusiness exhibit at SM City Naga.

Robredo served as one of the guest of honor during the opening of the ASPIRE Exhibit or the Agribusiness Support for Promotion and Investment in Regional Expositions.

“Dito sa Bicol, isa ang Agribusiness Support for Promotion and Investment in Regional Expositions, o ASPIRE, sa mga nagbibigay ng espasyo para sa ating mga magsasaka at mangingisda na ipakilala ang kanilang mga lokal na produkto sa mas malalaking merkado,” Robredo said.

“Sa mga exhibit na tulad nito, nakikita natin ang likas na sipag at tiyaga ng ating mga kababayan, at ang kahalagahan ng ating pagtutulungan upang masiguro ang kanilang patuloy na pag-asenso,” she added.

The Vice President said that her office will continue to support these kinds of initiatives that seek to help the marginalized sector.

“Naniniwala ako na sa patuloy na pakikiisa ng aming opisina sa mga iba’t ibang organisasyon, magiging matagumpay tayo sa layuning ito,” said Robredo.

“Sa ganitong paraan, mas abot-kamay na para sa ating mga magsasaka at mangingisda ang kanilang pangarap na mas magandang buhay,” she added.

The ASPIRE Exhibit at SM City Naga will run until July 14, 2019.

The event was spearheaded by the Department of Agriculture (DA), in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), and MNCCI.
