MANILA, Philippines – Ibinunyag ng isang opisyal mula sa Department of Agriculture (DA) ngayong Martes na ang ahensya ay nagbabalak na mag-angkat ng panibagong 1.3 milyong metrikong tonelada ng bigas.
Sa press briefing ng Palasyo, sinabi ni DA Undersecretary Mercedita Sombilla na iiskedyul pa rin ng ahensya ang planong pag-angkat ng bigas.
“Mayroon kaming ini-schedule. We will be scheduling the importation. We have already, you know… remember nasa sanitary, phytosanitary, hindi ba. We have already something like 1.3 volume of applications that are already pending there,” ani Sombilla.
“So, what we are going to be doing is to really encourage the private sector to get this [unclear] ‘no. I think the President will really have to do some discussions/consultations with the private sector so that, you know, para they to help us. I think we really need the help of the private sector sa mga ganitong sitwasyon,” aniya pa. RNT
