“The assistance for the Halal slaughterhouse ay approved na. May halal program din kami [na nakafocus sa production ng Halal],” said Dar during a recent press conference.

In the same press conference, Mayor Lucilo Bayron, together with Dar and other officials said that the opening of Halal slaughterhouse would boost the tourism sector not only in Puerto Princesa City but also of entire Palawan.

Bayron said the assistance includes the planning, structure and other important things needed to consider before its full operation.

“Wala pa tayong idea sa ngayon kung paano at anong klase ang halal slaughterhouse na ito kaya aantayin natin kila secretary,” said Bayron

The City mayor said the program is intended for the Muslim tourists and the proposed opening of Roro that connects Kudat, Malaysia and Palawan through Buliluyan Port.

“Tinitingnan natin dito ang turismo ng muslim countries, lalo na dito sa Puerto Princesa ay hirap ang ating mga bisita maghanap ng Halal foods,” said Bayron.

“Isa pa, ang roro natin from Kudat to Southern Palawan ay isa rin sa tinitingnan natin dahil kapag natuloy ‘yon ay maganda ang mangyayari kasi ito at muslim country. Mas maganda kung mauna tayo magkaroon ng ganito,” Bayron added.

Meanwhile, Dar visited Palawan on Friday for the vital agricultural events including the machinery distribution in Puerto Princesa City Agricultural Center.
