PRRD to issue EO to stop food price hike

President Rodrigo Duterte agreed to issue an executive order (EO) intended to address soaring inflation, Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia told Rappler. The possibility of issuing an EO was discussed during Duterte's private meeting with the economic managers right before the 29th Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, September 11. The EO will help implement the measures proposed by the Cabinet's economic cluster to help lower prices of essential food items like rice, poultry, and sugar.
