Stephen Antig, Pilipino Banana Growers Exporters Association executive director said the council is needed now that ASEAN neighbors have started venturing into banana, a development that could threaten the country's position in global markets.
"We need to shape up or we will see a time that we will no longer be the biggest producer of banana in Southeast Asia," he said. He also urged the government to respond to the position paper that it submitted to Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol last July 25, which contained the major concerns of the industry. The position paper includes issues on pole vaulting, peace and order, Panama Disease, China market difficulties, high import tariff on bananas in Japan and South Korea, and climate change and weather disturbances. "So far, we are still awaiting for the appropriate response to the position paper," Antig said.

Group: Proposed land arrangement law threatens agribiz | SunStar

Stephen Antig, PBGEA executive director, in an interview with SunStar Davao last week, said after the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (Carp) was passed, it was not easy for agribusinesses to get a land.
"Before, even with the implementation of Carp, there were options that we can consider that will allow us to continue with the businesses but conflicting government policies and laws are making it difficult every year," he said. Antig added that HB 5085, which is an act that regulates the establishment and implementation of AVAs in agrarian reform lands, is one of those laws, when passed, that will make the investment climate for agribusinesses not friendly. "I do not know what they intend to do or what are their plans as far as agriculture is concerned because they are making very hard for investors to engage in agribusiness," he said. Antig said a joint venture arrangement or any agreement is supposed to be left to the contracting parties. "There is suppose to be a separation because it is a private endeavor. They are making it appear that we are taking advantage of the agrarian reform beneficiaries but we cannot do that because there is a contract. If they are not agreeable then do not sign it," Antig said. He said if the law is implemented there will be less investors who will be interested investing here. "It is sad if something will happen to the industry that has provided employment and has contributed to the economy," Antig said. He said the proposed bill was filed in the last congress but was not taken up but was then re-filed in the current congress. Antig said they were invited to a public hearing on August 2 to discuss the proposed bill.
