The Philippine government may remove the ceiling on rice prices in two weeks as local harvests start to come in, Trade Secretary Alfredo Pascual said.
Agriculture Undersecretary Leo Sebastian expects domestic rough rice production to exceed 11 million metric tons in the second half of 2023, “and barring strong typhoons in the remaining months of the year, we hope to hit the 20-million MT” output, according to a statement from Marcos’s communications office on Sunday.
