Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero joined the Caraga State University and the co-organizing SUCs in the International Science and Technology for Development 2022 Forum (iSciTech4Dev 2022 Forum) held at the HERO Learning Commons Auditorium on November 17, 2022 on the 4th day of the 5-day forum as Keynote Speaker.

In his message using the Filipino language, he emphasized the relevance of research and innovation in the country’s development, especially in times of crisis. He highlighted the need to give special attention to the budget for research and innovation to ensure more productive and efficient initiatives in any socioeconomic undertaking. He quipped that in times when there are crises, more effort and budget should be poured into research and development to help cushion the economic stability.

He specifically mentioned the need for research in the agriculture and fishery sectors to address the technology and innovation needs of the farmers and fisherfolks. He stated that the sector has an average age of 54 years old and that we need to make the agri-fishery sector more modern and attuned to the need of the times because the whole nation is dependent on this sector for food security.

The state universities and colleges and other higher education institutions play important roles in promoting more productive undertakings, particularly in the agriculture and fishery sectors, to ensure that poverty is reduced and that the Filipinos are given the opportunity to achieve the collective long-term vision and aspirations for themselves and for the country in the next 25 years which is to have a “Matatag, Maginhawa at Panatag na Buhay.”
