He arrived at around 9 a.m. at the Bureau of Soil Management Office of the DA for his executive meeting with officials of the agriculture department.

The closed-door meeting reportedly started around 11 a.m.

After that, Marcos went around the DA office and met the personnel of the agriculture department.

Some of the personnel of the DA even chanted “BBM, BBM, BBM” while he was greeting them. Some of them even took ‘selfie’ photographs with him.

Marcos, who was accompanied by Executive Secretary Victor “Vic” D. Rodriguez, immediately left after greeting the employees of the DA.

The topics discussed in the closed-door meeting were not disclosed to the members of the media.

Marcos is concurrently serving as the country’s agriculture secretary “at least for now.”

He announced this decision last June 20, as he cited the urgency of addressing rising food prices and forestalling a food crisis in the country.
