Mohamed Irshad on Singapore Food Agency Bill(Updated: )
NMP Mohamed Irshad spoke on the Singapore Food Agency Bill in Parliament on Tuesday (Feb 12). He raised several points for clarification, such as what requirements will be introduced for importers of key food items to mitigate the impact of supply disruptions. He also cited agro-tech players who face challenges getting loan financing from banks because they are considered to be in the "farming business". He asked if the Government could formulate a mechanism to differentiate the various types of agriculture in Singapore.
