THE Philippine Coconut Authority has Mr. Billy Andal as its new administrator after he took his oath of office Thursday during a simple ceremony.
Andal, a Mapua Institute of Technology graduate, was the former head of President Roa Duterte Volunteer Foundation and Quezon province board member. He was appointed as the new PCA administrator on November 8, 2016 by the president.
During his acceptance speech, Andal vowed to solve the problem of coconut farmers on ‘cocolisap’ particularly in the island province of Basilan. He also said that he will work to increase the productivity of coconut farmers and make PCA a coconut farmer friendly office.
At the same time, he appealed to all PCA employees for cooperation.
