“Well, at the expense of the disers, ‘yung mga middle men, that’s not how it is because we are trying to come up with our decision to, I said, provide the people affordable and always, their food for all,” President Duterte explained, adding that the imports and exports have to be balanced with the trade all over the world.

The President also noted that we have to compete because that is why production is the secret. He was quoted as saying “We have to compete, that is why production is the secret. So ang production mo, pareho sa kanila then they have to choose,” the President said.

“The thing there is maintain the supply para pareho mura. Then kung ikaw Pilipino, kung pareho ‘yung ano mo, ‘di sa Pilipino ka na bumili. Makatulong ka pa,” he added.

President Duterte also thanked the Ayalas for their social and corporate conscience to help the Filipino people. He also reiterated his promise to eradicate corruption in his administration.
