Recto: Duterte right in putting rice "under one conductor"

Bringing the NFA under the control and direction of the DA Secretary is the right move.

There should be no two separate orchestras, with a conductor each, when it comes to rice. Para isang kumpas, it should be one symphony under the baton of one conductor.

I hope that this move will make rice policies and programs clear, cohesive and complementary. There should be one overseer so that the right combination of programs will be used in achieving food security. Having two resulted in policy incoherence and unsynchronized actions in the past.

Matagal na dapat ginawa ito.
