33 agri­cul­ture groups for Poe

-

UR­DANETA CITY, Pan­gasi­nan — Thirty-three agri­cul­ture or­ga­ni­za­tions here, con­sist­ing of farm­ers’ and ir­ri­ga­tors’ as­so­ci­a­tions, ex­pressed yesterday strong sup­port for the pres­i­den­tial bid of Sen­a­tor Grace Poe, say­ing she is the best bet to boost the coun­try’s agri­cul­tural sec­tor in the next six years.

“We are ex­press­ing our strong sup­port to the pres­i­den­tial can­di­dacy of Sen. Grace Poe in 2016 elec­tions. We are con­fi­dent that Grace Poe will give pri­or­ity to the con­cerns of the agri­cul­ture sec­tor and the in­ter­est of Filipino farm­ers as she has con­sis­tently shown since she was elected sen­a­tor,” said Rosendo So, pres­i­dent of the Sama­hang In­dus­triya ng Agrikul­tura (Si­nag) and Chair­man of Abono Partylist

So is op­ti­mistic that a Poe ad­min­is­tra­tion will in­sti­tute poli­cies ver­sus smug­gling of agri­cul­tural prod­ucts and im­ple­ment poli­cies that will de­velop the coun­try's agri sec­tor, some­thing that the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion has failed to fully ad­dress. (Liezle Basa Iñigo)
