Women’s Month message…
Rey Anthony Chiu

TAGBILARAN CITY, March 8, 2014 (PIA)— Governor Edgar Chatto asked Bohol women to have a little more than FAITH, during his keynote address during the opening launch of the International Women’s Month here at Plaza Rizal, March 8, 2014. 

Set in time for the International Women’s Day, the launching activity was among the many which Bohol organized for the day: a medical dental mission by Bohol Association of Women in Government Service (BAWIGS), a district caravan, a women’s product fair, on the spot photography and writing contests and still other smaller women-centered activities all over the island. 

Fresh from Manila and homing to beat the women’s month launching activity, Governor Chatto, who has been 

a staunch advocate for productivity in the Boholano home picked the theme for his address to women. 
Noting the agricultural, ornamental, processed food and other novelty souvenir products on display at the agricultural, ornamental and processed food fair, the governor then went on to touch Bohol’s agricultural food production in support of the tourism as stated in its vision.

Bohol then envisions to become a prime eco-cultural tourism destination in the Visayas, and with a strong agro-industry to support the tourism food supply requirements. 

In the same context of its vision, Chatto shared his elation upon seeing backyard produce among the items on showcase, which has generated a lot of interest from the morning crowd awaiting the activities at the plaza. 

Underscoring the need for productivity which contributes to the development of Bohol, Chatto said his productivity campaign slogan; Food Always In The Home (FAITH) is not enough for Bohol. 

“We need to go for a more commercial production,” he said. 

Citing agriculture poised as a strong support to tourism, the governor said “tourists come here spend and this money circulates all over the province.”

On this, he explained that agricultural products produced here have the tendency to keep the tourist money circulating here than it going to other areas. 

He said half of Bohol’s food requirements for locals and tourists come from Cagayan and Cebu. 

If we produce the food, that means we do not have to get the money outside Bohol to pay for these food products, he blurted. 

If food production here happens, everyone becomes a participant as everyone into supplying the food and the novelty items as souvenirs for tourists earn a bit, the governor said.
