Foreigners interested in Philippine's hybrid rice

"The hybrid rice developed by Filipino scientists is aromatic, glutinous and retains its softness even if it has become cold. Japan, for instance, wants to buy Philippine hybrid rice because it taste better than the Jasmine rice of Thailand."

are we going to repeat our old mistakes again? will we let other nations prosper with our solutions, while we wallow again in despair for we have not put our own to good use and then beg for scraps from those nations who did? i hope not. surely we have learned our lesson, but then again, history is filled with examples of people who remember but never learn.
