To strengthen the collective bargaining position of the ASEAN and expand products that are exported to international markets, the Philippines, represented by Agriculture Secretary William Dar, joined other member-states in signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on October 15, 2019 in Brunei Darussalam.

The MOU pushes for a promotion scheme that will enable products from ASEAN member-states to strategically position them on matters affecting trade in the international market and ensure that ASEAN products are being produced through sustainable means.

For the Philippines, the products that will be covered by the promotion scheme are seaweed and seaweed-based products; and coconut products. (Photos by Rita dela Cruz, DA Communications Group)
