With a forward looking Philippine agriculture that has a roadmap, the government with the strong and popular support from the citizenry, must provide the necessary budget and investment to grow and develop Philippine agriculture. The increased budget will help unlock the bigger potential contributions of agriculture and agribusiness to the economy, including more employment opportunities.
New ideas, new programs and projects are needed to innovate Philippine agriculture.
Budgets for programs/projects for Philippine agriculture can also be legislated, as in the case of the RCEF that is stipulated in Republic Act 11203 or the Rice Tariffication Law. As stated in No. 1, RCEF programs P10 billion in annual investments for the rice industry for the next six years, or a total of P60 billion.
