Coming Together for Cooperative Development

Cooperatives are a big part of business development in the Philippines, especially for those who want to establish their own projects but have very limited resources. The cooperative sector in the Philippines has seen a continuous rise in popularity and stability in the recent years, and is continually receiving support both from private enterprises and the government.

To extend the awareness, promote unity, and provide more avenues for development, the League of Cooperative Development Officers of the Philippines (LCDOP), the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), and the City of Olongapo jointly organized the Fourth National Tripartite Conference for Cooperative Development, held at the Olongapo City Convention Center last Sept. 23–25.

The three-day event saw to the participation of LCDOP and CDA officials; members and officials of different cooperatives; provincial, city, and municipal cooperative development officers; and local government unit (LGU) executives and staff.

The conference was sponsored by the Land Bank of the Philippines, Super Ferry, the LGU of the City of Tacurong, the province of Zamboanga Sibugay and the province of Cavite, Subic Bay Multi-Purpose Cooperative, Cooperative Bank of Cavite, Cavite Farmers Feedmilling and Marketing Cooperative, BOCOFAMCO (Bongabon Coconut Farmers Multi-Purpose Cooperative), the Western Mindanao Cooperative College, Lamac MPC, and the Samboangan Bayanihan Cooperative.
