Edillo agree to collaborate in pushing Region 02 as an agribusiness sourcing and investment destination. DA will support the upcoming PADDAY NA LIMA slated on September 24-30, 2019 at the Festival Mall, Alabang, Muntinlupa to showcase the region’s bountiful agro products such as corn, rice, citrus, coconut, banana, pineapple, ginger, peanuts and mongo, in both fresh and processed form.

Indeed, elderly workers may not be as agile or as strong as their younger counterparts but to hold this kind of negativity towards senior citizens assume that they can no longer be productive and may become a bane for the economy.
