This event holds special significance as it aligns with the provisions of RA No. 11502, designating the entire month of October as the “National Cooperative Month.” This annual celebration pays homage to cooperatives and underscores their pivotal role in propelling the country’s economic growth.

At the forefront of cooperative initiatives in Surigao City, the Surigao City Cooperative Development Council is vital in coordinating and overseeing the implementation of diverse suitable development plans, programs, and projects within the city.
