IMG 20181204 085748

The APTERR Secretariat participated the roundtable meeting on the Tier 3 programme and visited the disaster-prone areas as well as the warehouses in Iloilo, the Philippines. The meeting was hosted by the National Food Authority (NFA) of the Philippines and presided by NFA’s Deputy Administrator for Marketing Operations Attorney Judy Carol L. Dansal. The representatives from the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines also attended in this roundtable meeting.


Main issues of discussion included the food security situation in the Philippines and the steps of work implementation of ongoing Tier 3 programme in the Philippines under Japan’s 560-MT rice contribution.  The result of this roundtable meeting would help build a mutual understanding among relevant agencies on carrying out the Tier 3 programme implementation in the same direction to respond to the needs of our people in time emergency smoothly and effectively.


The APTERR Secretariat also inspected the NFA’s warehouse where will be stored the APTERR rice and the Port of Iloilo to ensure a smooth delivery of the rice.  Apart from this, the APTERR Secretariat visited the disaster-prone areas in Panay Island.


During the super typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines in 2013, the APTERR also provided 580 MT of rice assistance contributed by Japan to almost 20,000 affected households in Iloilo, Capiz and Aklan provinces in Panay island.
