Senator: sustain use of agri, fishery enhancement fund
MetadataShow full item record
Senator Cynthia Villar has sponsored a committee report on the bill seeking the continued use of the fund that will help farmers and fisherfolk improve their production and competitiveness. The Agricultural Competitiveness Enhancement Fund (ACEF) is set to expire in December 2015. "This is why ACEF miserably failed in achieving its objectives. The funds did not go to intended beneficiaries. Instead of scrapping the fund altogether, we are pushing for a law that will make sure the funds will be spent for the sole purpose of improving the productivity and competitiveness of small farmers and fisherfolk," Villar said.
