MANILA, Philippines – Target ng gobyerno ang pagbubuwis sa single-use plastics.

Sinabi ni Finance Undersecretary Zeno Ronald Abenoja, prayoridad ng administrasyon na makamit ang layunin na “sustainable development goals” kabilang na ang commitments na may kinalaman sa Paris Agreement.

“The discussions, the engagement with our partners, with congressmen and senators, are ongoing right now,” ani Abenoja sa isang EJAP-SMC Economic Forum.

“This is something that the government will pursue and collaborate with our legislators, crafting something that balances the need to raise revenues but also at the same time influence the behavior in terms of some of the activities that affect the environment,” dagdag na pahayag nito.

Pabor naman ang Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) sa intensyon ng panukalang batas na buwisan ang single-use plastic.

Pero ipinayo ng ahensya sa publiko na magsanay nang gumamit ng reusable bags, habang ang mga kumpanya ay pinayuhang maghanap ng alternatibong packaging. Kris Jose
