Central Visayas to have newly constructed farm-to-market roads

President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. announced on Monday that the government plans to build farm-to-market roads amounting to nearly P3 billion in Central Visayas. During a land distribution ceremony in Negros Oriental, Marcos revealed that P100 million will be dedicated to farm-to-market roads in the province.

“We have a lot of planned farm-to-market roads that cost almost P3 billion that will be built in Bohol, Cebu, Siquijor, and of course here in Negros Oriental,” Marcos stated in his speech.

The Palace confirmed that P100 million will be allocated to farm-to-market roads in Negros Oriental, specifically in the municipalities of Amlan, Dauin, Ayungon, Tanjay, Tayasan, Bindoy, and Bais City. Marcos emphasized the importance of prioritizing the construction of farm-to-market roads to address supply chain issues.

The initiative aims to facilitate easier transportation of agricultural products from farms to markets. Marcos, who previously headed the Department of Agriculture, highlighted the significance of investing in infrastructure to enhance the efficiency of the agricultural sector.
