Matagal na dapat ginawa! Ralph Recto lauds Duterte’s decision to place NFA under DA
Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto commended President Rodrigo Dutete for placing the National Food Authority (NFA) under the Department of Agriculture (DA).
The Batangas politiko said this will ensure that there will only be one direction for rice production in the country.
“Bringing the NFA under the control and direction of the DA Secretary is the right move,” Recto said.
“There should be no two separate orchestras, with a conductor each, when it comes to rice. Para isang kumpas, it should be one symphony under the baton of one conductor,” he added.
Recto explained having separate “overseers” for rice production and importation have “resulted in policy incoherence and unsynchronized actions in the past.”
“I hope that this move will make rice policies and programs clear, cohesive and complementary. There should be one overseer so that the right combination of programs will be used in achieving food security,” he said.
“Matagal na dapat ginawa ito,” Recto added.
