Modern banana farms expected to thrive in North Cotabato

In North Cotabato province, banana farms are soon to spring up in a 5,000-hectare special geographic area of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM). According to Bangsamoro Transition Authority Member of Parliament, Suharto Ambolodto, the project is aimed at alleviating the lives of farmers and to encourage more local businessmen invest.

Businessmirror.com.ph quoted him as saying: “This activity is mainly to look upon the opportunities of local entrepreneurs to invest here since they would be investing for the future of our Bangsamoro people.” The SGA comprises the 63 villages in six towns of North Cotabato that opted to join the BARMM in January and February 2019.

Ambolodto said the signing of the memorandum of agreement (MOA) with local investors bolstered the set-up of a banana plantation in a combined 5,000 hectares of farmlands in villages under the SGA in Kabacan.
