With the above outlined strategies and directions, the country’s agriculture sector needs the help of both the Senate and the House of Representatives, for policy and structural reforms that need to be legislated and institutionalized.

President Rodrigo RoaDuterte can also certify urgent legislative measures for agricultural and rural development.

More pro-poor laws are also needed, like the Sagip Saka Act or RA 11321 that establishes the "Farmers and Fisherfolk Enterprise Development Program" referring to “the comprehensive set of objectives, targets, and holistic approach in promoting the establishment of enterprises involving agricultural and fishery products.”

One of the recent laws passed that legislates support for the farming sector is the Rice Tariffication Law or RA 11203, which stipulates the allocation of P10 billion annually for six years to fund programs and projects to modernize the country’s rice industry. With the tariff collection coming in, the budget should now be programmed into the new PH Roadmap.
