The Philippines is well positioned to be a major sardines provider in the entire Southeast Asian region through the Zamboanga Peninsula or Region 9 with the upcoming Asean integration, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) said. “To reach the 600 million strong consumers of Asean, we need to work together to craft a local roadmap aligned with national policies. The local roadmap will identify the visions of the region for the industry as well as gaps including needed policy interventions to grow,” DTI Assistant Secretary Rafaelita Aldaba said.
