SORSOGON CITY (08-Oct-2012) – “Sorsogon Paunlarin, Agrikultura’t Industriya Pasiglahin” is the theme for Kasanggayahan 2012 celebration, a vision to propel the province with agriculture base industry. The organizers made true its commitment by showcasing agri products which for years were partly neglected.

The Sorsogon Provincial Management Office said that for this year celebration agri-fishery/agri-industry products will take center stage, that it will be marketed to its full potential, a far cry from the lack of focus the previous hosting. The product contribution and importance in the growth of the province will be re-examined.

Sally Lee as Chairman of SPMO and its festival partners said that the past years the potential of Sorsogon as a province abundant in agri and marine resources were missed by potential investors, thus they aimed to promote the distinctiveness of Sorsogon by its raw agriculture/marine resources.

In 1974, Kasanggayahan Festival showcase farm products, that time was more on exhibiting the product of harvested crops, years took hold to challenge the organizers to put Sorsogon in business consciousness.

A clear direction is needed to showcase the vast potentials of Sorsogon. It will generates domestic attention and hoped that foreign interest by tourism take at least a stop while in transit, this can only be done by cooperation of all stakeholders, the former Sorsogon governor said. Achieving such goal she added, will be the proof that we made headway.

Our potentials to become an agriculture industry economy must be in accord with our  tourism trust. It becomes an ingredient in boosting the province, she further added.

Partnering once more with Kasanggayahan Foundation, Inc., a no-nonsense approach with less fanfare will be experience at this year Kasanggayahan, at the Land where everyone dreams of abundance in life, in spirit and character as a Sorsoganon. [BicolToday.com]
