YLANG YLANG FOR EXPORT: Job Generation Project of Rep. Bataoil

YLANG YLANG FOR EXPORT. Congressman Leopoldo Bataoil (2nd District, Pangasinan) shows 
recently the 120,000 ylang ylang seedlings at the mountainous area of Barangay Hacienda, 
Bugallon, Pangasinan. The perfume tree ylang-ylang known to originate in Philippines would be
 given to the hundreds of members of People’s Organization (PO) 
there for them to tend as their livelihood at a 120 hectares public domain provided by the 
Department of Environment & National Resources’ National Greening Program.
 What made Representative Bataoil projects unique is there is already an investor that 
would buy the fragrant leaves of the trees in case they started producing. The investor, Fred Reyes, would
 then export the Ylang Ylang leaves to the perfume makers in France. MORTZ C. ORTIGOZA

At the seedling areas of the Department of Environment & Natural Resources in Brgy Hacienda in Bugallon, Pangasinan. Seedlings here are those of 120,000 Ylang Ylang , 60,000 gimillina, and 1,500 coconut trees. Projects of Congressman Pol Bataoil (2nd District, Pangasinan) for the hundreds of members of People's Organization in the areas that would be benefiting on his pioneering and laudable project with the DENR. Iyong 120,000 Ylang-Ylang has a ready market in France for the perfume industry there. "Iyong Chanel 5 na perfume galing iyan sa Ylang-Ylang," an investor told us. It would be the Philippines in South East Asia that would start to export this product to France.

Riding a Pog-Pog or tractor or Kubota drawn trailer (background) was a rare experience as media men joined Congressman Pol Bataoil (2nd District, Pangasinan) and staff as they passed and trekked for more than an hour on the rough and tumble roads, creeks, rivers, and uphill areas to see the solon's laudable hundreds of thousands of Ylang-Ylang and other seedling projects so the people in Brgy. Hacienda, Bugallon will have employment in the planned export industry.
