HUNGDUAN, Ifugao (Nov. 23) – Outmigration is one of the major problems the local government unit (LGU) of Hungduan faces as residents seek better opportunities in neighboring towns.

He said the town has a 9,380 population, mostly woodcarvers and farmers. He disclosed that most woodcarvers migrate to Pugo, La Union; Asin, Baguio City and Olongapo City.
Cuyahon admitted this is an alarming situation which his administration is facing.
