On the first Friday of April 2019, the DTI Region 02 and Cagayan Provincial Office staff and management took a two-hour respite from their usual work routine to make time for prayer and contemplation through a short Lenten recollection and celebration of the Holy Eucharist presided by Reverend Father Adelbert Barut.
In a little over three months since the first OTOP Philippines in Region 02 was launched in Tuguegarao City, Cagayan, DTI Region 02 launched the 2nd OTOP Philippines Hub in the City of Santiago in Isabela Province. DTI Assistant Secretary Demphna Du-Naga, DTI’s focal person for the OTOP Philippines Program graced the event as guest of honor.
March 22 marks World Water Day, an international annual observance for water recommended by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development back in 1992. This year’s theme is Leaving No One Behind: Whoever you are, wherever you are, water is your human right. This fits rightly with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal No. 6 which is crystal water, safe water for all by 2030.
