SINABI ng Palasyo na isang magandang balita ang ulat na bumagal ang pagtaas ng bilihin matapos na nakapagtala ang Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) ng 6 porsiyentong inflation rate ngayong Nobyembre.
“The Palace accepts this as good news. We attribute this to the President’s empathy to public clamor and his decisive action in response thereto, which includes the issuance of Administrative Order No. 13 to streamline procedures on the importation of agricultural products, including rice, as well as Memorandum Order (MO) Nos. 26, 27, and 28 to stabilize the prices of agriculture and fishery products at reasonable levels and maintain their sufficient supply in our markets,” sabi ni Presidential Spokesperson at Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo.
Idinagdag ni Panelo na ang mga ipinatupad na kautusan ang siyang naging susi para bumaba ang presyo ng pagkain sa 8 porsiyento ngayong Nobyembre mula sa 9.4 porsiyento noong Oktubre.
“Prices of rice, corn, fish, meat, fruits and vegetables have gone down. We assure everyone that we will continue to be vigilant and monitor the prices of basic goods and commodities to ensure that hunger incidence and food insecurity are eradicated,” dagdag ni Panelo.
