THE Taguig City government has manifested its support to the Kadiwa ng Pangulo (KNP) program which is part of the President’s Eight-Point Socio-economic Agenda aimed at ensuring food security, promoting agricultural productivity, and accelerating poverty reduction by boosting farm production.

Mayor Laarni Cayetano attended a two-day KNP event held recently at the Technical University of the Philippines – Taguig. She said the activity “marked yet another significant step in supporting local farmers and providing affordable, nutritious options for Taguigeños.”

Taguig’s Agriculture Office set up 14 booths showcasing a variety of fresh farm produce and food items during the event.

Cayetano said the initiative was made possible in collaboration with key partners, including the Office of the President, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Trade and Industry, the Department of Labor and Employment, the Department of Social Welfare and Development, and the Department of the Interior and Local Government.

The KNP, an initiative of the Marcos’ administration, serves as a direct marketing platform for farmers and small business owners. It aims to make agri-products and other basic commodities accessible and affordable for the poor. It also seeks to create a new market for farmers and fishermen to sell their products directly to the consumers,  increasing their income in the process.
