Author: DA Communications Group | 25 September 2020

Recognizing the role of agriculture journalists in disseminating information and developments of government policies and programs to the public, Agriculture Secretary William Dar led the awarding ceremony of the Philippine Agricultural Journalists Inc. (PAJ) Binhi Award and its 44th anniversary celebration held at the Bureau of Soils and Water Management (BSWM) Convention Hall on September 24, 2020.

In his keynote message, Dar challenged the members of PAJ to come out and take a stand on various policy reforms, such as Rice Tariffication Law (RTL), being implemented by the government. He said the PAJ should utilize social networking sites to state their position on various issues in agriculture.

“In an era of social media and fake news, please continue with your advocacy of reporting and celebrating with us even the smallest milestones in Philippine agriculture. Remain at the forefront of helping secure a bright future for agricultural journalism in the country,” Dar said. (Photos by Gian Carlo Luague, DA-AFID)
