An alliance of farmers’ groups in the Cordillera Administrative Region is appealing for more protection from the government amid rampant vegetable smuggling and importation of “cheap” and “unsafe” agricultural products.

In a statement on Monday, Alyansa Dagiti Pesante iti Taéng Kordilyéra (Apit Tako) said vegetable imports and smuggling had worsened farmers’ losses during the pandemic.

“Even its [government] actions on vegetable smuggling are belated, haphazard, half-hearted and weak,” Apit Tako said.
