After the vegetable and onion day the workshop participants could explore a part of the Aurora Memorial National Park during the excursion on the 6th of February. The following day was all about rice. At the beginning the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) in Munoz was visited. Afterwards there was a rice tasting in the afternoon.
The penultimate day of the workshop was dedicated to the political situation in the Philippines. This included a visit of the Ministry, which the participants prepared for in the morning with a collection of questions and an introduction to the political situation and history of GMOs (genetically modified organisms). The meeting at the Ministry was followed up and the methods and priorities of MASIPAG’s political work were discussed.
