Aklan Provincial Agriculturist William Castillo is assuring the resort and hotels that there is adequate food supply to meet demand in the island of Boracay.
Speaking at an interview by this station yesterday, Castillo said that the province has sufficient plantains, yet there are some difficulties in importing fish because of the northeast monsoon that draws a cold weather condition.
He is therefore urging public not to panic. “Let me say categorically that there is no need for the kind of hysteria being perpetuated,” Castillo said.
Meanwhile, there was a report that some of the hotels and resorts in Boracay are sometimes forced to take agricultural products in other provinces due to lack of foodstuffs in Aklan.
