Tabuk City, Kalinga – Governor Ferdinand Tubban has assured the support of the provincial government to Micro-, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) in the province during the launching of P998,880 worth of Shared Service Facility (SSF) on Rice Noodles Processing on Tuesday, November 9, 2021.

Tubban has been rallying for a concerted effort to revive the local economy through partnerships and innovation. In most of his previous talks regarding economic recovery, he has emphasized a means similar to the whole of nation approach of the national government.

“These are important projects and actions to help our entrepreneurs and the university. Rest assured to the DTI family, ibaga yu latta kinyada nga ti province of Kalinga, under our leadership, is very much supportive of the endeavors of our MSMEs here in Kalinga,” Governor Tubban said.

According to the governor, the launching of the said facility is vital, as this could also be shared by the university, especially with MSMEs in Kalinga, which have been greatly affected by the pandemic.

The university, having acquired various equipment, Tubban said, could help enhance the productivity not only their rice noodles products but also innovate other products MSMEs in the province and the university could produce through the available raw materials found in the province.

“Kasapulan tayun nga ag-innovate tapnu iti kasta ket nu adda man dagiti raw materials tayu, adda iti kuna tayu nga mai-process tayu ken wait for the time nga mabalin nga i-market tayu isuda ket through this, makaabante tayu. This is now the time for us to heal. We have to heal as one,” the governor stated.

Aside from the innovation of products, the governor said the SSF granted could also be used in training entrepreneurs in the province, as well as the students of KSU.

As to the rice noodles which will be produced by KSU, Tubban said this would be beneficial for public health, especially those who are fond of “noodles” as KSU can now add nutritious ingredients to their product.

“Congratulations, sapay kuma ta daytuy nga facility ket adu met ti ited na kadagiti umay dituy karkaru ittuy university tayu ,” he concluded.
