MetadataShow full item record
Representatives of private companies have been visiting Luuk Pandan and Panglima Sugala, Tawi-Tawi, lately because a ₱5-million mariculture park will be built there soon. USAID’s Growth with Equity in Mindanao (GEM) program has been coordinating the site visits of private sector groups interested in exploring the possibility of investing in the planned hatchery in Tawi–Tawi province. The provincial governor of Tawi–Tawi, Sadikul Sahali, has issued an open invitation to interested investors in an effort to promote interest in the project and the governor has been escorting technical teams evaluating the potential of the proposed hatchery. The project is also being assisted by the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC), which is developing the technical designs, the Philippines Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA), which will undertake the construction, and the provincial government, which is providing two hectares of land for the hatchery site, and has allocated ₱5 million for site development.
