Vice President Leni Robredo has signed an agreement with the local government of Odiongan in Romblon to help the farmers and fisherfolk community in the said town.

Robredo said that the Office of the Vice President aims to uplift the lives of the residents of Odiongan.

“Hangad ng ating opisina na iangat ang antas ng kabuhayan ng ating mga kababayan, lalo na iyong mga nasa laylayan ng lipunan, tulad ng mga kapatid nating magsasaka at mangingisda,” the Vice President said.

“Kaya naman ngayong tanghali, pinirmahan natin ang isang Memorandum of Agreement para pormal na simulan ang ating pakikipag-ugnayan sa LGU ng Odiongan, Romblon,” she added.

Robredo also noted that the agreement is part of her campaign promise to help those on the fringe of society.

“Layon ng ugnayang ito na tulungan ang mga magsasaka at mangingisda sa kanilang paghahanapbuhay,” she said.

“Bahagi pa rin ito ng pangako natin na abutin at mag-abot ng tulong sa pinakamalalayo at pinakamahihirap na komunidad sa ating bansa,” added the Vice President.
