93rd Anniversary of the Bureau of Plant Industry

As the celebration of the 93rd Anniversary of the Bureau of Plant Industry-Los Baños Center, we’re honored that our Premium Leis was part of such a wonderful yet, locally promoted event.

The 93rd anniversary of DA – Bureau of Plant Industry

The Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Plant Industry (DA-BPI) celebrated its 93rd anniversary on January 19, 2023, at the BPI PQS Multipurpose Gym with the theme “Boost, Promote, & Innovate: Championing Food Security via Proactive Plant Industry.”

Mass was held before the main event, which was hosted by Mr. Carlos Paul C. Pedracio and Ms. Cecilla C. Mallari. Domingo F. Panganiban, DA-Senior Undersecretary; DA-Assist. Sec. Atty. The event was attended by Jane C. Bacayao, the Executive Director of the Philippine Rice Research Institute (DA-PhilRice), Jonn De Leon, PhD, Dr. Kyu Seong Lee, the Director of the Korean Program on International Agriculture (KOPIA), dignitaries and representatives from various foreign embassies, guests, top BPI officials, and employees.

Assist made some welcoming remarks. Dir. The Doctorate in Herminigilda A. Gabertan sincerely thanked everyone who came to the occasion. Also, she gave everyone encouragement and added, “Let’s hold hands as one BPI family. In order to truly overcome the issues we are now facing, we must work with our partners. Let’s carry on and make progress toward the things we need to do in this trying time by the grace and kindness of our Lord.

DABPI Director Gerald Glenn F. Panganiban, PhD, expressed his profound gratitude and recognized the efforts of all Bureau personnel for their commitment and support, which helped the organization get to where it is today. We are all aware that agriculture still has a long way to go, but we have made progress since the administration, led by our president Bongbong Marcos Jr., issued clear guidelines stating that the department’s main priority should be ensuring food security. We obviously cannot accomplish this on our own, which is why I am grateful that our partners are on board to support us, coordinate our efforts, and enhance one another’s skills and qualifications. So I’m thinking that as the plant sector grows, we can work together to accomplish this.


Printbay is beyond grateful to be part of this wonderful event. We are honored that our Premium Leis brought magic in this event.
