PFDA stays true to its mandate to promote the country's fisheries sector by discussing future collaboration with Batangas

In the pursuit of boosting economic activities in the province, Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA), headed by General Manager Atty. Glen A. Pangapalan, met with the Batangas Provincial Government to discuss possible collaboration on the establishment of an Agri-Industrial Business Corridors (ABCs) project, June 18, 2021.

The development of ABCs is one of Department of Agriculture (DA) Secretary Dr. William Dar’s reformed 18 Key Strategies dubbed as “One DA” holistic approach strategies towards a modern and industrialized agriculture and fisheries sector. 

Dubbed as the Batangas Access Zone Project, the PFDA team and Batangas LGU visited and went around the target development site, particularly in Brgy. San Pascual, Batangas City,  where a fish port complex may be potentially established based on the project overview.

Once the project is realized, this improvement plan can help accommodate more vessels to dock in the Batangas International Port and may help surpass Port Manila’s cargo handling statistics. In addition, this project is set to provide more business prospects for investors and create more job opportunities brought about by the development in the area.

Along with GM Pangapalan, Acting Assistant General Manager Ms. Iris De Vera, Corporate Planning and MIS Department OIC Ms. Gina Reyes, Construction Management Division - Technical Services Department Chief Engr. Eduardo Manalo, Corporate Board Secretary Atty. Jose Ruiz III and Public Information Division OIC Mr. Mc Christian Julius Macaranas II were also part of PFDA’s visiting team.
