‘Make sugar poll issue’

Sugar industry stakeholders should support national and local candidates who have demonstrated their concern for the sugar industry, the ARBs Sugar Farmers Federation – Kilusang Pagbabago said in a press release yesterday.

“Let us support the ten senators who introduced the senate resolution urging the country’s economic managers to stop pursuing their plan to liberalize sugar importation,” said Aaron Sorbito, chairman of the ARB federation which has eleven member-associations in Negros.

On Wednesday senators Juan Miguel Zubiri, Cynthia Villar, JV Ejercito, Sonny Angara, Richard Gordon, Koko Pimentel, Nancy Binay, Joel Villanueva, Sherwin Gatchalian and Loren Legarda passed a resolution exhorting the executive department to abandon the proposal to deregulate sugar importation.
