Importation of sugar should
benefit all industries – DTI
MANILA - Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon Lopez said the importation of sugar should be to the benefit of all industries that require it, as well as the consuming public in general.
At the two-day Franchise Asia Philippines international conference that ended yesterday, Lopez said manufacturers who need sugar in production “are at (a) disadvantage right now” due to the decline in supply, as reported by the Sugar Regulatory Administration.Lopez said even while the Department of Agriculture has allowed the import of sugar, the inbound supply was allocated to only a few millers and traders.
