“We really need to work together,” said Department of Agriculture (DA) Secretary Emmanuel Pinol and Co-Chair for the Philippines Partnership for Sustainable Agriculture (PPSA) as he committed PhP 2M to support the PPSA Secretariat.
Members of the PPSA Core Committee convened for the 2nd PPSA Core Committee Meeting at the DA in October 2017. PPSA Working Group leads and their representatives updated the Secretary on the latest developments within the different value chain projects under their Working Groups. The Secretary reiterated the importance of working together, recognizing the group’s enthusiasm and its support to achieve national agriculture goals.
Grow Asia also signified its support to the PPSA and presented its strategies to achieve scale for greater impact in the region during 2018.
