ARB, workers alliance sought
vs. sugar import deregulation

The Negros-based ARBs Sugar Farmers Federation–Kilusang Pagbabago is calling for a broad coalition of agrarian reform beneficiaries, sugar industry workers, and cause-oriented groups to oppose sugar import liberalization.

“The Rice Tariffication Act is a clear signal that government is deadly serious on liberalizing importation of agricultural products. Sugar is next, as openly declared by the country’s economic managers,” Aaron Sorbito, the group’s chairman, said in a press release.

While the sugar industry has already registered its collective opposition to the proposed sugar import liberalization with a unanimous resolution during the sugar summit last week, Sorbito said he believes that the industry cannot afford to be complacent.
