conversion good: guv
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Maraņon Jr.
said yesterday that the planned conversion by the Sugar Regulatory
Administration of the country's outstanding stock of "D" or world
market sugar into "B" or domestic sugar will be advantageous to
producers and consumers.
This will mean the producers will earn
more from their sugar, and additional supply poured into the domestic
market will halt the rise of retail prices that will be good for
consumers, he added.
The country has no shortage of sugar, the
sugar allocated for the world market in warehouses just needs to be
released into the domestic market, he said.
