Agriculture Secretary William D. Dar thanked his OneDA family during the opening ceremonies of the 124th Founding Anniversary of DA on June 20, 2022.

“I have the biggest respect and I am saluting all men and women of the Department of Agriculture (DA) for a job well done. Thank all of you from the bottom of my heart,” he said, adding that despite the challenges that the agency faced for the last 2 years and 10 months, the Department remained strong, turning every crisis into an opportunity.

The agri chief also announced that the agriculture sector was beginning to reap the benefits of a more efficient and modernized food system. He said it is high time to bring agriculture into the new era.

“Consumer spending at goods should increase because of continued gains of employments and outputs. Investments in agriculture should remain strong because of the increasing level of demands,” Secretary Dar stressed.

The Secretary also urged everyone to be prepared for the looming global food crisis, and to remain vigilant and use these times for the achievement of great growth. “Let us remain on course behind the OneDA reform agenda,” he emphasized.

Sec. Dar also shared the direction that the next administration should pursue. ###
