Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala said the country is on the right track toward food security and climate change. “I think we are laying down a good foundation,” Alcala told the media here, citing the Benguet Agri-Pinoy Trade Center for the region’s produce. “While we have our fears in the Philippines, other ASEAN countries have their fear.” Alcala said Benguet Governor Nestor Fongwan and Assistant Secretary Paz Benavidez Jr. have been laying the groundwork for processing vegetables for export to Vietnam. “As long as we are opening up, I think we can really be competitive,” he said. “That’s how smart the Filipino is.”
