LUCENA CITY, Quezon, March 14 (PIA)- Nilinaw  ni Regional Development Council Vice Chairperson NEDA Director Luis Banua sa idinaos na press conference sa lungsod na ito kamakailan na hindi naiiwan ang lalawigan ng Quezon pagdating sa kaunlaran at industriyalisasyon.

 

Ayon kay Dir. Banua may  mga  programang inihahanda ang  National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) para sa lalawigan katulad ng pagpapasigla ng turismo  gayundin ang  paglalagay ng mga processing plant dahil kilala ang lalawigan ng Quezon bilang agricultural land o may malaking lupaing agrikultural

Ayon pa sa ibang mga mga opisyal ng RDC na dumalo sa press conference, mas malaki ang kikitain ng mga magsasaka kung ang kanilang mga produkto ay dadaan sa processing plant.

Inihayag naman ni Dir. Maria Zenaida Campita ng Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Region-4A ang kanilang ibinigay na tulong sa mga bayan sa Quezon kagaya ng pagpapaunlad ng proyektong coco-sugar  production sa bayan ng Alabat  na malaki ang naitutulong sa mga magsasaka ng niyog upang kumita sa paggawa ng coco-sugar at iba pang mga produkto mula sa niyog.

Samantala, ipinagmalaki naman ni Quezon Governor  David “Jayjay” C. Suarez ang Quezon’s First 1000 Days of Life o Q1K Project, na sa kasalukuyuan ay nasa tatlong taon na itong ipinatutupad sa lalawigan ng Quezon

Sa tulong at suporta ng mga opisyal mula sa iba’t-ibang munisipalidad sa lalawigan, ang nasabing proyekto ay nagkaroon na ng pagkikilala mula sa UNICEF Foundation na kung saan ay nagkaroon rin ng kolaborasyon ang organisasyon sa lokal na gobyerno sa pagbuo ng mga aklat at modyul tungkol sa Q1K project na naglalayong mas makapagbigay tulong at impormasyon sa mamamayan o mga nagbubuntis.

Samantala isa  rin sa sa binigyang pansin at isinulong ng council ay ang kahilingan sa nasyunal na pamahalaan na agad ng pasimulan ang TR4 o extension ng South Luzon Expressway mula sa Sto. Tomas, Batangas hanggang sa Lucena City. (GG/Ruel Orinday/ PIA-Quezon/ may ulat mula sa Quezon PIO)
