Present during the meeting were Regional Director Dianne Silva, ARD Antonio Arañas, RXI Provincial Managers, Regional and Provincial Industry Service Officers.
Pablo R. Gonzales, Jr., GRECON - XI Regional Director, expressed his gratitude to the NFA for its continued support to their endeavors. He also said that the GRECON is committed to work closely with the NFA in strengthening the grains industry.
In her message RD Silva commended GRECON for their cooperation especially during the height of the alleged “fake rice” issue which erupted in Davao City in June 2015. She said, “We have a very potent, strong and powerful partner in the grains industry. Because of GRECON’s coordination, the issue on the alleged fake rice was promptly addressed not only in the region but also in the entire country.” She also encouraged them to pray for the nation and continue to wear a sensible heart because such is their social responsibility as grains businessmen in nation building. In parting, she said, "Together, we can do more.” – (Maria Celia Prestoza, correspondent)
