In the early morning of 2 July 2014, STC aired the Association’s plea for clarity/synchronization in DTI’s coordination with suppliers so retailers can comply with greater ease in “aligning” prices with SRPs posted by the DTI for basic necessities and prime commodities. Anchors for the day’s early news were (L-R) Anthony Taberna, Bernadette Sembrano and Jorge Cariño.
