PNoy meets farmer groups
DEPUTY Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said President Brenigno Aquino “meets with farmers who sought an audience with him for a dialogue on agrarian reform.”
“This follows consultations between the cabinet secretaries and the farmer groups on how to systematically and efficiently address their concerns,” Valte said.
She said “our government has always recognized the vitality of rural enterprises toward achieving food security and equitable economic growth. This opportunity for farmers to personally meet the President is a reaffirmation of our government’s unwavering commitment for agrarian reform and vigorous support for the development of our countryside,” Valte said.
