Mini rice mills are being distributed to seven BARMM cooperatives.

Ramos also stressed the need of using contemporary equipment and sophisticated technologies in order to boost production, raise revenue, and create jobs.
She went on to say that this would benefit not just cooperative members, but also community members, which would assist drive the country’s economic growth and development, proving that cooperatives have a significant multiplier impact.

Solaiman also reaffirmed the Bangsamoro Government’s strong commitment to assist the agricultural sector, especially farmers, for their important contributions to the region’s economy, as headed by Chief Minister Ahod Alhaj Murad Ebrahim.
