Gov. Lacson said that the difficulty of transporting agricultural goods has been endured by farmers for a long time and has been aggravated by the pandemic and vulnerability to frequent weather changes, that is why rural infrastructure is a major development priority of the provincial government.

“To the people of Manapla, particularly farmers and fisherfolks, please know that your provincial government together with your local government have your best interest at heart and we are going to do what we can to assist and empower you,” he said.
