Visited Lagawe Provincial Capitol of Ifugao and also had the opportunity to diacuss with our farmers and barangay captains the importance of preserving Banaue Rice Terraces which has been deteriorating since the young Ifugaos do not want to continue farming at te terraces, likewise shanties have been sprouting around the terraces.

I committed to push for the development of the infrastructure and the improvement of the TIEZA run Banaue Terraces Hotel so as to attract more tourists.

Thank you Governor Pedro Mayam-o, Mayor Jerry Dalipog of Banaue and other mayors and my fellow civil servants from the Province of Ifugao for the warm welcome and hospitality.
