            Framework
      and the ASEAN Agenda

              Panel Session on
           “ASEAN and Agriculture”
             Regional Conference on

              Bangkok, Thailand
         Philippine Agriculture
   Bedrock of the rural economy
   Major source of raw resources on which the
    rest of the economy depends
   Accounts for 20% of GNP
   1/3 of the population employed in
    agriculture or agriculture-related industries
           Philippine Agriculture
           and Poverty Alleviation
   Poverty in the Philippines essentially a rural
    phenomenon
   Magnitude of poverty highest in the rural areas
    where agriculture serves as the economic base
   Development of agriculture , which plays a such a
    major role in the generation of incomes and
    employment in the countryside, is therefore
    essential to any anti-poverty program
            Philippine Agriculture
   Very limited impact in reducing rural
    unemployment, underemployment and poverty
   Agricultural production has grown less than
    population growth
   Agricultural productivity improvements not
    sufficient to reduce food prices to regional levels
   Highly seasonal nature of agriculture,
    vulnerability to price fluctuations and generally
    low prices offered to raw products

Holistic Approach in Reducing Rural Poverty
         The Agribusiness Approach
   Address production bottlenecks in
    agriculture and its inherent vulnerabilities
   Promotion of agribusiness to address
    agricultural production constraints, post-
    production handling, value-adding, and
    distribution concerns
          Agribusiness Approach
   Expansion of production base: breaking out from
    subsistence agriculture by increasing and diversifying the
    marketable surplus of the farm

   Raising production and distribution efficiency: increasing
    the price and quality competitiveness of the farm

   Promoting equitable distribution of production and
    productivity gains: governance and institutional reforms to
    ensure, among others, that the gains will result in
    commensurate farmer and consumer welfare gains
Philippine Agricultural Development Framework
            and the ASEAN Agenda

     ASEAN Economic Community (AEC)
    End-goal of economic integration

    Establish ASEAN as a single market and
     production base, with free flow of goods,
     services, investment and labor, and freer flow of
     capital towards fulfillment of ASEAN Vision
     2020

AEC can provide the environment conducive
 to enhancing the attainment of the goals and
     objectives of the MTPDP agribusiness
                    approach.
