BAGAC, Bataan- The expected operation of the P 150 million World Bank –funded San Antonio-Saysain road in this town creates a big boost to the agricultural development and tourism industry.
Former Bagac town Mayor Mel Teopengco describes the concreting of the 15 kilometer road connecting the upland village of San Antonio to the coastal area of Barangay Saysain ensures sustainable revenues for upland farmers and facilitates the conversion of idle lands to productive root crops, vegetable, fruits and other agricultural products.
The probable opening of the road this year would initiate reforestation of hundred hectares of hilly section and the establishment of farm tourism site with the swelling number of visitors to the world-class beaches and resorts of the town.
Teopengco observed that the significant function of farm to market road is in improving the mobility of the rural residents, goods and services as well as to provide access to employment opportunities and basic social services such as schools and health centers.
He has commended the priority program of incumbent Mayor Louise Gabriel Q. del Rosario to upgrade the quality of life in the countryside and expand food sufficiency with the rising economic status of one of the premier tourist destinations in Central Luzon.
He added that foreign and local investors have been conducting feasibility studies on the great potential of the town as eco-industrial and tourism and travel haven particularly along the panoramic 50 kilometer coastline fronting the West Philippine Sea.
