Misamis Oriental's Kuyamis festival seen to boost the province’s tourism, coconut industries

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Jan. 12 (PNA) -- The celebration of Misamis Oriental’s annual “Kuyamis Festival” is seen to boost the tourism and coconut industries in the province, Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano said Thursday.

The “Kuyamis” is derived from the sweet native coconut trees, which was endemic only in the province of Misamis Oriental prior to the coming of the Spaniards.

Now on its fourth year, the festival, which kicked off last Monday and runs until Friday, converted the Provincial Capitol grounds into an agri - fair with Misamis Oriental towns displaying their mainly coconut-based local products.

Emano said that promoting the province through tourism is one of the flagships of the provincial administration.

“I believe that the 'Kuyamis Festival' could become one of the sustainable tourism projects that could help the provincial government attain its goal of promoting and developing the tourism industry in Misamis Oriental,” Emano said.

He said the festival also serves to highlight the multiple uses of the coconut that can help farmers increase their income.

Emano said that coconut farmers could earn more, if the other parts of the coconut tree other than the copra meat, could be utilized for various commercial purposes.

Data released by the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) revealed that Misamis Oriental ranked fifth top coconut producer in the country.

The PCA said that Misamis Oriental has about 36,000 coconut growers who planted over 8 million coconut trees in 102,622 hectares of land in Misamis Oriental.

Citing data from the Philippine Statistical Authority, the PCA said that the country has around 329 million fruit bearing coconut trees planted on 3.517 million hectares of land or 26 percent of the country’s total agricultural land. (PNA)
