     The Rice Tarrification Law, also known as Rice Liberalization Act of Republic Act No. 11203, amends the Agricultural Tarrification Act of 1996 that imposed tarrif to agricultural imports except for rice.

     One of the objectives of the Tarrification Law is to lower domestic rice prices to levels that would be affordable to greater majority of the population. But this law has made things worse for the local farmers.

     When the unrestricted rice importation started, many farmers have complained that they are suffering. Because of the unrestricted rice importation, many rice millers buys lower-priced imported rice instead of buying from the local farmers. So we end up supporting farmers from other countries while the Filipino farmers gets hungry.

     If this law becomes revoked, all the efforts of the Filipino farmers wouldn't put to waste. It will be a big help for them to lesser all the sufferings that they're experiencing.
