LOOK ‖ Reaping the Rewards of a Successful Partnership!

In support to the thrust for convergence initiatives of NIA Administrator Eduardo Eddie G. Guillen, the NIA Regional Office VIII, headed by its Acting Regional Manager Engr. Jaime C. De Jesus, successfully sealed EPAHP Marketing Agreement and Partnership with the National Food Authority (NFA) Northern Samar which resulted in the increase of palay sales and buffer stock.

For the first time in 20 years, NFA Northern Samar has recorded approximately “more than 8,000 bags of palay” for the 1st Cropping Season of CY 2024. This massive procurement and sales of palay came from the Irrigators’ Associations in Northern Samar as they undertake their obligations in the implementation of EPAHP Marketing Agreement between NIA, IA and NFA in relation to the latter’s Palay procurement program.

This huge success speaks volume on the significance of the irrigation projects in the whole of Northern Samar in relation to the agricultural and economic development of the province.
