Piñol bats for more FMRs
MANILA - Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol sees the need to build more roads that will link food production areas and markets in the country to help promote food security and boost agriculture’s performance.
Constructing such roads, he said, would facilitate and cheapen the transport of agricultural produce from those areas to make food more available in the market at prices consumers and farmers can still earn, he said.“The build, build, build program of government should be extended to arterial and farm-to-market roads (FMR) leading to the food production areas," he said yesterday in his official Facebook account.
