Victorias City, Philippines, Agriculture / Tourism Enhancement Project Utilizing Nanjo City Model

The island of Negros, the city of Victoria, is overly dependent on the sugar industry and many were at risk of starvation during the sugar crisis of the 1980s. In 2013, Nanjo City and Lequio Wings visited the city of Victoria using JICA's overseas program to convert from the sugar industry to organic agricultural products and to maximize the use of local resources We started this project in October 2014, taking advantage of the experience of the city. We plan to continue civic/regional exchanges between the two cities after the project ends.
