PhilRice directors, officials, and branch station managers reviewed the targets and indicators of the Strategic Plan (Strat Plan), which set the Institute’s directions from 2017 to 2022.

The review focused on evaluating the performance of projects and programs contributing to the accomplishment of the targets of the Institute. It also measured the Plan’s responsiveness to emerging challenges and changes in the rice industry during the third year of its implementation.

“Aside from updating the Strategic Plan, this also gives us the chance to harmonize the Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund Seed and Extension Program, and the Department of Agriculture’s New Thinking paradigms with PhilRice targets,” Dr. John C. De Leon, executive director emphasized.

The Plan shifts PhilRice operations form business-as-usual to business-unusual and rice industry development focusing on cultivation, commerce, consumption, and competitiveness. It also aims for certain strategic outcomes through impact-oriented and partnership-driven R4D.
