PAGASA GUEST AT "UMAGANG KAY GANDA" PAGASA GUEST AT "UMAGANG KAY GANDA" PAGASA GUEST AT "UMAGANG KAY GANDA" STC is interviewed at dawn popular tv program “Umagang kay Ganda” to clear up discrepancies of SRPs (Suggested Retail Price) coming from suppliers and those from the DTI.  As it seems, DTI did not agree to requests for price increase of certain SKUs by some suppliers whereby the notice of disagreement was announced after suppliers have  already increased prices to retailers (not thinking that DTI would disagree; as in most past cases). 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.

BSP’s 1st Consultative Meeting of Stakeholders on Hoarding of Legal Tender Coins Since Congress has passed on third hearing the Bill on Hoarding of Coins, the BSP thought it prudent to engage all stakeholders regarding this Bill to ask as to what levels constitutes “hoarding of coins.” PAGASA and other fellow retailers were one in opining that the word “hoarding” seems misleading as the feeling is one of constant lack of coins in general circulation. Discussions veered towards ways to encourage the public to part with coins stashed inside households. The Meeting was held on the afternoon of 25 June 2014 at the highly-secured BSP Security Plant Complex along East Ave., QC.

EMERGENCY NPCC MEETING EMERGENCY NPCC MEETING EMERGENCY NPCC MEETING DTI Sec. Gregory Domingo, acting as Chairman of the National Price Coordinating Council (NPCC) calls an Emergency Meeting in view of uptick of prices for rice, sugar, garlic and chicken among others. He is supported by DTI Usec. Victorio Mario Dimagiba, DA Asec. Leandro Gazmin (concurrent head of the Agri-Marketing Assistance Services <AMAS>) and DTI-NCR’s Arch. Ferdinand Manfoste.  The NPCC is made up of all concerned government agencies that have to do with the movement of prices of basic necessities and prime commodities like DA’s Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI), Sugar Regulatory Authority (SRA)and the National Food Authority (NFA), BSP, DOE, LTFRB, DOJ, PAGASA (the Weather Bureau) and the like. It also includes Industry Organizations like PAGASA, NAMVESCO (Market Vendors Org’n.), Phil. Assn. of Hog Raisers/Poultry & Broiler Org’ns., Phil. Assn. of Meat Processors and major manufacturers whose products are categorized as market leaders.  STC brings up the controversial issue of DTI’s SRPs which sometimes run counter to SRPs from major suppliers (since price adjustments from suppliers are immediate whereas DTI takes around 2 weeks to review these adjustments and evaluate them whether they are warranted; sometimes, price adjustments are “disapproved” even after suppliers have already disseminated said price adjustments to retailers resulting in some pricing confusion). STC is interviewed after the Meeting regarding confusion on SRPs and pricing in supermarkets.
