Veggie business eases 

By Jenny Mendoza Dayao

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet -- The Benguet Agri-Pinoy Trading Center (BAPTC) alternate road here is now open for farmers, and traders to use as an entrance for transacting in the center.
           Frederick Edeco, BAPTC contract trading and marketing department director, said a group of traders travelling within Luzon and Visayas negotiated with the center to immediately open the loop road so they can transfer to the center.
This considering ongoing road construction along Strawberry Field affecting the entry and exit of clients in the center causing heavy traffic.
Edeco added heavy traffic in the valley is hampering growth of vegetable industry,  but also causing heavy losses to farmers and traders.
The construction of the BAPTC loop road was commitment of Rep. Ronald Cosalan.
As the curing for the road was completed, the center immediately contacted the La Trinidad Police Station Traffic Management Station headed by SPO4 Hector Sianen to facilitate its opening and use by farmers.
After a meeting last Tuesday, it was decided that the road will be opened this Sunday, June 27.
         Sianen said that they will designate police officers to the exit and entry point to manage the traffic flow and guide the farmers and traders. Further, the designated police officers will implement the exemption of coding and truck ban for the clients of the center.
The entry way of the loop road is beside the Commission on Audit, along Km. 6, La Trinidad, Benguet while the exit point will be at Palmaville going to Puguis National Road.

With the opening of the road, the traders committed their support to conduct trading activities with the BAPTC.
