National Year of Rice

nyrice I just got a National Year of Rice commemorative note. More information about the National Year of Rice can be found at http://www.nyr2013.com/. From that website:

The National Year of Rice is part of the Philippine government’s bid to achieve rice-self-sufficiency beginning 2013. It is an advocacy campaign that aims to promote responsible rice consumption for better health and less rice wastage and productive farming through the promotion of efficient rice technologies and inspiring farmers to do better. The year 2013 was proclaimed as the National Year of Rice by President Benigno S. Aquino III under Proclamation no. 494 on October 18, 2012 to enjoin everyone in this advocacy.
