National Food Fisheries Summit

Author: DA Communications Group | 27 September 2019

Agriculture Secretary William Dar attended the opening of the National Food Fisheries Summit on September 27, 2019 at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City.

He believes that the P200-billion fishery industry can double its value if the Department will implement the right plans, strategies, and mechanisms at the right time.

Dar said the summit is an opportunity to unify scientists and industry stakeholders to synthesize various resolutions that will ensure the full adoption of the “New Thinking” and its eight paradigms. He also stressed that now is the time to address the challenges of fishery modernization, while restructuring its development framework towards a more productive, inclusive, and sustainable Philippine fishery sector. ### (Photos by Alan Jay Jacalan, AFID)
