De Mesa of the Department of Agriculture’s Philippine Rural Development Project (DA-PRDP), gave this message recently to the people of Zamboanga del Norte particularly from Tampilisan Municipality after the ground breaking ceremony of the Rehabilitation/Concreting of Poblacion- Farmington-Galingon-Balacbaan-Cabong-Tilubog farm-to-market road covering 13.82 kilometers worth more than P188 Million.

This will be implemented throughout the country. In the case of Tampilisan, the P188 Million shall be shared of which the 80 percent or more than P150 Million would come from the WB loan proceeds, the Department of Agriculture gives the 10 percent equity while PLGU Zamboanga del Norte has put up the other 10 percent counterpart.
