Welcome To Antique
Antigo. Dumaan. Duna. Antique. When one hears the name of the province “ Antique, “ people not familiar with the place would often interpret the term by its Webster dictionary definition as “antique” (an'tek), which means “ancient”, “out of date”, “old fashioned”. To those who are fond of modern or trendy things, being antique would have no appeal. But for those who know how to value ancient or antique things as in artifacts, the word would mean, “precious”, “valuable”, “priceless” and “memorable”. For this is what Antique is to Antiqueños. For those who had left the province for other places, the memory of home is so vivid and going back, if only for a short visit, is constantly alluring.

In the 1970s, where the concept of sustainable development was passionately advocated across the globe, Evelio B. Javier was among the first of the leaders in the Philippines to implement programs and projects for this cause. A visionary, he capsulized his dream in this famous line “ang bata kang manug-arado o manugbantay kang karbaw indi mintras tanto mangin manug-arado o manugbantay man kang karbaw.” He concretized this when he put up the Upland Development Program (UDP) piloted in the seven (7) hectare cogon-grass upland of Barangay Igbucagay in Hamtic, and was later replicated in several areas in the province.
