In behalf of Civil Service Commission  Regional Director Macybell Alfaro Sahi, Alvin Araneta said  that the civil servants are  the best resources  to sustain the mandates  of any agency.  “This activity is a manifestation of  DA’s  support to  its employees.  Recognizing the loyalty and continuous service of  the men and women in this agency will encourage them  to  exert more effort in the pursuit of  food security.” 

For his part,  DA Regional Executive Director  Eduardo B. Holoyohoy said “we are facing the challenge of food staple sufficiency  in 2013.  I am sure that  we can attain this with all your support and with the  divine intervention because weather condition is not within our  control.” RED Holoyohoy also  inducted the newly elected set of officers for the DA’s Multipurpose Cooperative with Ferdinand Gamorot as the Chairman, Engr.
