BBM welcomes Australia’s lifting of anti-dumping measures; says it’s good for PH farmers

FILIPINO VERSION

PAGBAWI NG AUSTRALIA SA ANTI-DUMPING MEASURES, MAKAKATULONG SA MGA MAGSASAKA – BBM

Iginiit ni Partido Federal ng Pilipinas standard-bearer Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. na makakabuti sa mga magsasakang Pilipino ang pagbawi ng pamahalaan ng Australia sa anti-dumping measures laban sa mga pinyang de lata na galing sa Pilipinas.

Ayon kay Marcos, maaari na nila ngayong i-export ang kanilang mga produkto sa Australia pagkatapos ng 15 taon.

Aniya, lalakas din ang commerce relations sa pagitan ng Pilipinas at Australia, bukod pa sa native pineapple sector, dahil sa naturang pagtanggal ng anti-dumping measures.

Ayon pa sa presidential aspirant, mas higit na makikinabang dito ang mga pineapple farmers sa Northern Mindanao dahil pinya ang pangunahing produkto doon.

Ayon sa datos mula sa Philippine Statistics Authority, sa second quarter ng 2021, nakapag-ani ang Northern Mindanao ng 362,000 metric tons ng pinya. Ang 48.6 porsyento na kontribusyon ng Northern Mindanao sa whole manufacturing ng pinya ay mas mataas kesa sa 187.71 thousand metric tons, o 25.2 %, na galing sa SOCCSKARGEN.

Iginiit din ni Marcos na dahil ang Pilipinas ang second-largest producer ng pinya sa buong mundo, madadagdagan ang kita ng mga native farmers kung madadagdagan ang demand sa pinya.

Ayon sa PSA, ang pinya ang pinaka-lucrative sa 27 na native farm and fish merchandise sa bansa noong 2020 matapos na makatala ng 526-percent return on funding (ROI) dito. Ang mga magtatanim ng pinya ay kumita ng P782,978 gross income per hectare na funding mula sa kanilang P124,881.

Noong Oktubre 6, nagdesisyon ang Anti-Dumping Fee (ADC) ng Australia na hintuan na ang pagpapatupad ng nasabing pagbabawal ng mga canned pineapples mula sa Pilipinas matapos mapatunayan na hindi naman magdudulot ng dumping ng nasabing produkto kapag tinanggal ito at hindi rin makakapagdulot ng materials harm sa kanilang home trade.

Unang ipinatupad ang anti-dumping measure noong 2006 matapos itong hilingin sa kanilang gobyerno ng Golden Circle Restricted, nag-iisang producer ng canned pineapples sa Australia.

Limang taon itong unang ipinatupad at ine-extend ng tig-lima pang taon noong 2011 at 2016. Dahil sa hiling ulit ng Golden Circle ng isa pang extension, nagsagawa ng overview nito at ang resulta nito ang nagging basehan para tanggalin na ang anti-dumping measure sa halip na muling bigyan ng extension.
