The Philippines was awarded “Outstanding Country” by the Asian Food and Agriculture Cooperation Initiative (AFACI) during a workshop on Basic Agriculture in Hanoi, Vietnam.
For its outstanding accomplishments in organic agriculture, the Philippines, represented by the  Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Soils and Water Management (DA-BSWM), was conferred the “Outstanding Country” award by the Asian Food and Agriculture Cooperation Initiative (AFACI) during the AFACI Program Workshop on Basic Agriculture held on August 18 to 22, 2015 in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The Philippines leads the ten Asian member countries under AFACI’s Asian Network for Sustainable Farming Technology (ANSOFT).
The program workshop was organized for the member countries to create high-impact results on the basic agriculture programs being implemented in each country. The activity served as a venue for the BSWM to impart its knowledge about the high-impact results of the DA’s Organic Agriculture and Agri-Pinoy Corn Program.
The BSWM intends to allot the US$2,000 cash prize it received for the training of fresh college graduates, opening new opportunities for the youth and for the development of organic agriculture, particularly in Mindanao.(da.gov.ph)
