SRA: Pablo’s damage
could cause sugar drop

The Sugar Regulatory Administration is conducting a thorough assessment of the damage of typhoon "Pablo" on sugarcane crops, which may cause a drop in this year’s production, SRA administrator Ma. Regina Bautista Martin said yesterday.

“We have to inspect and verify the effects of the damages”, she said, pointing out that some planters and millers have reported damages due to flooding and lodging in Bukidnon, where the typhoon passed.

“We have only one SRA staff who will make the assessment in each mill district, so we coordinate with the mills, the planters association and the mill district development councils to acquire a picture of the whole situation”, Martin said.moremoremore

Epayment launched

The Sugar Regulatory Administration is now ready to implement an electronic payment system for the export and import of sugar and sugar-based products to facilitate trade through the Philippine National Single Window (PNSW), SRA Administrator Ma. Regina Martin said yesterday.

SRA is among the first two government agencies piloted to implement the e-payment under the PNSW system together with the National Telecommunications Commission, Martin said.

This will facilitate paperless transaction in speed, with a full package of ePayment features, cutting transaction costs in securing cargo permits and clearances, she explained.moremoremore
