Central province governor Robert Agarobe said yesterday they have signed an MOU with the Philippines province of Mindanao to collaborate and develop agriculture.
The secretary for the province of Mindanao Emmanuel Pinol and him signed the MOU witnessed by the Philippines Ambassador to PNG Bienvenido Tejano and Prime Minister Hon James Marape.
“As per our provincial plan, the promotion of a one crop per electorate concept is slowly coming into fruition,” Agarobe said.
“We plan to put a lot of emphasis on Cocoa in Abau, Coffee in Goilala, Live stock in Rigo and Rice in Kairuku Hiri.”
“We will also be looking at other crops and industry to promote and drive our economy in collaboration with our rural people.”
He said the signing of the MOU would fast track the process.
When Agarobe went to the elections in 2017 his development focus was on agriculture, ensuring villagers earn their income through agriculture.
