Lamut, Ifugao-The local government of Lamut, Ifugao recently started the initial ground leveling of the agricultural, aquatic and livestock trading post center at Mabatobato, Lamut, Ifugao.


The trading center will greatly benefit the farmers and traders of the municipality of Lamut and so with the farmers and traders from the different municipalities of Ifugao. It will be more profitable to market one’s product in the Lamut trading center than to market them at Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya.


Lamut is a very favorable site for agriculture, aquatic and livestock marketing because of its potentials for production, its proximity to the neighboring provinces of Nueva Vizcaya, Isabela, Cagayan and also its strategic location as an entry or exit route for traders and tourists.


The required amount for the initial start of the project is 10 million pesos. The Local Development Council composed of the  18 barangay local government units  approved the implementation of the project in 2014. Moreover, the Sangguniang Bayan, after evaluating the merit of the request for legislation, aligned the fund intended for the purchase of the geothermal lining of the closed dumpsite at Naban-ngan, Payawan to the construction of the said trading center.


Mayor Mariano B. Buyagawan, Jr. with the consent of the SB was able to enter into a contract of usufruct (use) for an additional  3 million funding from the Provincial Government headed by Governor Dennis Habawel. #Rosito B. Malingan
