Secretary for Transport and Public Works Raimundo do Rosario admitted yesterday that the number of personnel in the Meteorological and Geophysical Bureau (SMG) is insufficient, adding that the government found it difficult to recruit more staff for the weather station with the aim of improving its forecasting.

Rosario attended a plenum in the legislature’s hemicycle which discussed a debate motion presented by directly-elected non-establishment lawmaker Sulu Sou Ka Hou on the issue.

The legislature passed Sou’s debate motion in November last year, which questioned whether the government was willing to thoroughly reform the operations of the Meteorological and Geophysical Bureau, namely concerning the way the bureau informs the public about the possible threats of typhoons and its internal management.
