Price of palay plummeting,
now P13 per kilo in Negros

The price of palay or unhusked rice in Negros Occidental has also dropped, Provincial Agriculturist Japhet Masculino said yesterday.

“We received reports from the field that the price of palay has continued to decrease. The harvest season is just starting. If there’s no intervention, it’s going to continue to plummet,” he said.

The average farm gate price of palay continued to decrease to P13 to P14 per kilo, from P18 to P20 per kilo, he said, adding that the reason for the downtrend was that the traders still have stocks from their imports, so they do not buy additional stocks yet.

Capitol, Japan city
strengthen tourism bond

The provincial government of Negros Occidental is strengthening its collaboration with Amakusa City in Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan, Cristine Mansinares, Negros Occidental provincial supervising tourism operations officer, said yesterday.

Tourism officials, along with representatives of hotel and tourism associations of Amakusa, in southern Japan, are expected to arrive in the province later this month for the tourism business exchange program set on September 26 at Nature’s Village Resort in Talisay City.

Mansinares said the program will expand the tourism market of two local governments, and their Japanese counterparts will also promote the province in their home city.
