Press Secretary Trixie Cruz Angeles said today, 18 August, that President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is eyeing to import 150,000 metric tons of sugar, but she cannot tell yet when the government will do so.

“So yes po, kinoconfirm natin na ‘yun ang proposed amount, 150,000 metric tons,” said Angeles. “’Yun po ang proposed quantity for importation gawa nga ng pangangailangan ng mga industrials na tinatawag ng ating Pangulo. Sila po ang gumagamit in commercial quantities, in large commercial quantities ng asukal, and some jobs are dependent on their continued production.” (Michelle Guillang)
