Aside from its world-renowned sweet mangoes, the provincial of Guimaras is geared to develop its seaweeds industry through the collaboration between the Department of Agriculture-Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP), the provincial local government unit (LGU) and the Sabang Seaweed Growers Association as the livelihood project's lead proponent group. The funding will come from the World Bank (P8,886,232.80); the provincial government (P2,962,077.60); the provincial government of Guimaras (P2,962,077.60) and the proponent equity of P3,702,597. The provincial of Guimaras is the second seaweed producer in Western Visayas next to the province of Antique. It also has many potential areas for expansion considering that it is situated between the islands of Panay and Negros.
