MetadataShow full item record
Thailand and Philippines are working closely on boosting local shrimp farming to help meet growing global demand, Thai Ambassador Thanatip Upatising said here during the opening of the 11th National Shrimp Congress at the SMX Convention Center. Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol, who graced the event, turned over a R20-million loan package to farmers from southern Negros. Upatising said that it is time for the Philippines to boost its shrimp production because it has a long shoreline, adding that it will not just be good for the country but for the neighboring Southeast Asian countries as well.
