Author: DA Communications Group | 30 October 2019

More than 500 participants from the local government units, the academe, and private sector organizations joined the Department of Agriculture (DA) and its attached bureaus and agencies during the 2019 National Food Security Summit on October 29-30, 2019.

This year’s theme, “Sama-sama tungo sa Masaganang Ani at Mataas na Kita,” highlights the new vision of the DA following the New Thinking in Philippine Agriculture introduced by Secretary William Dar.

The two-day event served as a venue for discussions on the current challenges faced by the agriculture sector such as the effect of the Rice Trade Liberalization Law, the falling prices of copra, and African swine fever, among others.
