Through this cooperation, the Regent hoped that IPB can help Pasaman Regency in terms of assistance in the acceleration of economic development, especially in the agricultural sector. "Hopefully, it can be run optimally with this MoU. Thus, the vision of Pasaman Regency, namely prosperous society, religious and cultured, can be realized", he explained.
