DIPOLOG CITY – As a prelude to Zamboanga del Norte’s 62nd founding anniversary, the provincial government in cooperation with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has organized an agri-tourism investments forum or the Nego-Tour 2014 come May 29-30 in Dipolog City.

The two-day activity includes a Nego-Tour conference at Top Plaza Hotel and an agri-tourism industrial trade fair at the city boulevard, all of this city.

In a related development, the provincial government will be spearheading a festivity dubbed “Saulog” to highlight the 62nd founding anniversary of Zamboanga del Norte. It also aims to recognize the accomplishments and achievements of the province’s two cities and 25 municipalities as well as the civil society organizations, which all contribute to its growth and development.

The event will also showcase and promote the vast natural resources, sprawling agricultural lands and various tourism sites as potential areas for investments.

“The province virtually sits atop deposits of precious and semi-precious minerals, has vast plantation and agricultural areas, blessed with a lot of historical sites as well as scenic spots, rich culture and warm hospitality of the people, and you have the perfect place for those who may want to invest and unwind, or to stay for good while doing business on the side,” DTI-ZN Provincial Director Noel Bazan said.

Bazan also disclosed that DTI-9 OIC-Regional Director Sitti Amina Jain is also attending the forum. She will talk on investment opportunities in modern rubber production.

Bazan stressed that the province is highly suitable for rubber production, as it is having plenty of idle lands that can be planted to rubber.

“In behalf of the provincial government of Zamboanga del Norte, we invite everyone, most especially those who have the money but don’t know where to invest, to come and participate in the Nego-Tour 2014,” Bazan urged.
