The Palawan Sangguniang Panlalawigan has asked the Department of Agrarian Reform to fast track the awarding of lands to qualified agriculture graduates.

The Palawan board earlier adopted a measure titled: Resolution No. 056-21- Urging DAR Palawan office thru Conrado Guevarra, Agrarian Reform Officer to facilitate land distribution to qualifed graduates of agricultural courses and related fields pursuant to their DAR Admin. Order 03 series of 2020.

The said resolution was authored by Board Member Ryan Maminta.

Maminta said that the DAR issued an order last year granting agricultural lands to graduates of agriculture courses.

“Para gamitin nilang parang laboratory farms at maging bahagi nung kanilang kabuhayan higit sa lahat makatulong doon sa seguridad ng pagkain pati na rin ang kanilang propesyon ay maiangat nila” said BM Maminta.

Maminta said that he already asked PARO Guevarra to hasten the process of the land grant.

“Sakaling mapagkalooban na umano ang lahat ng mga kwalipikado ay maaari naman niyang hilingin sa Office of the Provincial Agriculture na tulungan at alalayan ang mga ito sa kanilang pagsisimula,” said the Provincial Government.

“Umaasa naman si BM Maminta na mapagbibigyan ng DAR ang naturang kahilingin para sa lalong pagpapaunlad ng sektor ng agrikultura sa lalawigan,” it added.
