"Aurora will be given a chance to promote its premier agriculture sector and tourist destination in the Chinese and Southeast Asian market. This will lead to more employment and livelihood opportunities to its locals through the entry of foreign and domestic capital that will boost our income-generating industries," said CITEM Executive Director Clayton Tugonon.
"Harnessing the economic competitiveness of Aurora province will enable its local to diversify its products and improve the services that it can offer to the local and international markets," Tugonon added.
Agriculture is the main economic driver in Aurora, employing approximately half of the population in this booming industry. About 49,991 hectares or 15% of the provincial land area are cultivated farmlands. Major crops include rice, coconut, coffee, bananas, root crops, corn, citrus fruits, peanuts, and abaca. The province is also a major producer of the Philippine's best-tasting virgin coconut distilled wine, also known as "lambanog," which is made from the sap or “tuba” of coconut tree flowers.

Some of the fascinating water spots in Aurora are the Dinadiawan Beach, Sabang Beach, Dingalan White Beach, Dimadimalangat Islet, Dicasalarin Bay and Banju Springs.

"In fact, Aurora is where you can find the 600-year- old “balete” tree that was designated the official "Millennium Tree" of The Philippines, the largest tree of its kind in Asia. It is also home to the endangered Philippine eagle and other rare species of amphibians, reptiles, and other birds," said Tugonon. | end |
