“Our agriculture sector is significantly challenged. Every Filipino eats an average of 2.34 kilograms of onions per year and theoretically the country produces enough to meet the demand, official data shows. But since the tropical climate only allows one planting per year of the rain-averse crop, stocks are consumed or spoil well before the next harvest. The recent lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, which allowed the resumption of food-focused festivals and family gatherings for Christmas, triggered soaring demand for onions.”

President's Message

Norbert Wilson
AAEA President

December 2022

I am thankful. In the midst of all of the busyness and challenges of the world around us, I can honestly say that I am grateful. I hope the same for you. While across AAEA, we have different life experiences and social locations. We share a certain level of privilege and voice as members of an academic association. From our student members to full professors to government or business leaders, we have access to resources, skills, and platforms to enact good in our communities and world. Our training is a great resource to employ for the common welfare. In my address this summer, I asked for the membership to find their way toward justice. Climate change, equity (regardless of the dimension), communities in economic difficulty, optimal policy setting, or other areas of your work, I hope that you will work for the good.
