Policy changes proposed in DA to improve ease of doing in agri sector
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Agriculture (DA) was told to change certain policies as the unnecessary regulatory burden, just like in other sectors, affects the ease of doing business in the agriculture and fishery sector. This was revealed in a study commissioned by the Philippine Council for Agriculture and Fisheries (PCAF) and conducted by the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP). According to the study, businesses have to bear unnecessary regulatory burdens like duplication of requirements in securing licenses and permits that could have an impact in terms of cost, time, and complexity arising from overregulation.
