Aside from cooking demonstrations using Polish agricultural produce, the event also showcased a wide array of Polish export products from apples, beverages, chocolates, canned meat products, etc.
WARSAW_____Philippine Ambassador to Poland Ms. Patricia Ann Paez stressed that agro-processing technologies is a most promising sector for bilateral cooperation between the Philippines and Poland during her brief huddle with Poland Minister of Agriculture Hon. Mr. Krzysztof Jurgiel during today’s New Year reception hosted by the latter.
Amb. Paez also expressed confidence that the reopening of the Polish Embassy in Manila this year will boost the engagement between the Philippines and Poland in the field of agriculture, especially since agricultural modernization is one of the top priorities of the Duterte administration.
The lady envoy also noted that about 20% of the country’s agricultural produce go to waste because of lack of, or outdated, post-harvest and agro-processing technologies - an area where Poland excels.
