The Regional Development Council-Central Visayas approved Friday four resolutions supporting the Tamlang Valley development project of Negros Oriental in a 3rd Quarter Full Council Meeting held at the Negros Oriental Convention Center in Dumaguete.

The RDC resolutions include: 1) Supporting the operationalization of the Tamlang Valley Management Council; 2) Reiterating the endorsement of the project concept for the Tamlang Valley in Negros Oriental as an Agro-Industrial Estate to the Department of Agriculture for support on the conduct of the feasibility study; 3) Approving the inclusion of the Tamlang Valley Sustainable Agriculture for Growth & Resiliency project in the Regional Development Investment Program 2023-2028; and 4) Encouraging regional line agencies in partnership with private sector and civil society organizations to consider implementing programs, activities and projects at Tamlang Valley as convergence initiatives in coordination with TVMC, the Project Management Office, and  the DA as the focal agency.

Tamlang Valley is envisioned as the food basket of Negros Oriental and of the Central Visayas region as this will increase agricultural, livestock, and aquaculture production, provide infrastructure facilities, and capacitate farmers and communities to become productive project partners.
