Philippines: Study on Agribusiness, Infrastructure, and Logistics for growth in Mindanao – Policy Note – August 2010

Abstract:

Both the banana and corn value chains offer considerable scope for contributing to future economic growth in Mindanao, provided the appropriate policies and programs are implemented. A support program would entail a combination of policy measures and public investment aimed at leveraging private investment, particularly in the upstream part of the value chains. There is no reason for the banana sub-sector in the Philippines, both for the export and domestic markets, not to continue growing strongly in the years ahead. Expanding markets at home and abroad and a strong comparative advantage on the world market should be the main drivers of this growth.
