This was done in achieving Bislig City’s vision to become the model city for Organic Agriculture in the Philippines by 2020. Mr. Renfredo G. Camba, City Budget Officer and ICO-City Information Officer did the introduction message and explained further the City’s mission. It was attended by 4P’s Representative leaders, City Social Worker Development Staffs, City Cooperative members represented by Mr. Almar Autida and from different sectors.
