‘No rice shortage in NegOcc’

There is no rice shortage in Negros Occidental, we have a bumper crop, Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday.

The governor, who was reacting to reports that the National Food Authority has run out of rice to sell, said there has been a huge harvest in the province with the good weather.

He said he believes that next year, Negros Occidental will already be 100 percent self-sufficient in rice.
