[VIDEO]: LOOK: Bongbong Marcos visits Agriculture Department
Loans for DA Funding
President Bongbong Marcos did not mention about loans. He wants to use the funds in the possible rice tariffication law amendment in the Department of Agriculture to help farmers. Also, P10 billion is returned to the farming community. Maybe some other budgets are unspent. So, that’s enough to start with.
President Marcos also said that the National Food Authority (NFA) and the Food Terminal Inc have changed their functions over the years. Perhaps it’s time to return them to their original functions, added Marcos. Raising funding for post harvest facility is also crucial in the near future. Loans should be handy for this purpose if ever.
While PBBM was at the DA, Senator Erwin Tulfo was at the DSWD. He did a briefing session. Meanwhile Rep. Boying Remulla was also at the Justice Secretary. They attended the usual flag ceremony in their respective posts.
