BREAKING: Duterte to focus on agriculture and tourism in 2017 —Speaker Alvarez





According to Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, President Rodrigo Duterte’s goal in 2017 was to achieve self-sufficiency in rice and also to boost foreign visitors and develop tourism infrastructure.
“Ang usapan namin ni Secretary Mariano, magkakaroon sila ng imbentaryo doon sa mga lupain na wala pang irigasyon na palayan at ito ay ipo-programa ng ating gobyerno, ba-budgetan po iyan ng gobyerno nang sa ganoon ang rice production natin ay makuha natin para sa magiging self-reliant tayo at eventually before the end of the term of President Duterte, baka pupuwede na tayong mag-export ng in excess of our requirements,” said Alvarez.

Alvarez said that the infrastructure development in the country was going to discuss with Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo.
“Kung ihambing po natin ito sa karatig-bansa natin kagaya halimbawa ng Malaysia, Vietnam, medyo malayo po yung ating tourist arrivals. Ngayon po, kinakailangan po ang ating gobyerno ay mag-invest po ng infrastructure kung saan pumupunta itong mga tourists natin upang sa ganoon ay maengganyo po sila na bumisita sa ating bansa,” said Alvarez.
