The Department of Agriculture – Philippines has inked pact anew for #Agrilink2023! A longtime supporter of Agrilink, the DA sees AgriLink FoodLink AquaLink as an ideal platform to emphasize its core programs and projects as well as promote the importance of an integrated focus on the chain of agribusiness activities, which, in turn, improves the efficiency of value adding and supply chain.

The DA and its allied agencies, such as the Bureau of Plant Industry, DA Agribusiness – AMAS, and DA-PHilMech will participate in Agrilink, slated from October 5 to 7 at World Trade Center, Pasay City.

Since Agrilink’s inception, the DA has actively supported the Foundation for Resource Linkage and Development (FRLD) in organizing the triple exhibit in order to achieve the mutual goal of uplifting Philippine agricultural industries by establishing linkages and facilitating information, knowledge, and technology transfer.

This year’s edition of Agrilink will focus on #PlantHealth and #ValueAdding, which are crucial for improving the competitiveness of Philippine agriculture. Agrilink 2023 will also highlight the dynamic mango industry and Region 1 (Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan).
