The Philippine Air Force supported the Mindanao Development Authority's first Fruit Festival which was held at Session Road, Baguio City from August 24 to 25, 2019.
On 23 August 2019, the C-130 Hercules and C-295 transport aircraft of the Philippine Air Force were used to cargo 22 tonnes of assorted fruits like Durian, Marang, Rambutan, Lanzones and Mangosteen from Davao City to Baguio City.
The Fruit Festival is a joint project of the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) and the City Government of Baguio. It aims to promote and help Mindanao fruit vendors to sell their products and allow Baguio City and Northern Luzon consumers to buy fruits at low prices.
"This partnership symbolizes the whole-of-nation approach between government agencies toward sustainable peace and development of the country", MinDA Chairperson Manny Piñol said.
