PN 2012-22: How Critical Is Transport and Logistics Infrastructure to Interregional Trade? The Case of High-value Fruits and Vegetables in Mindanao

It is the largest producer of food and live animals with 90 percent of its produce going to Luzon and Visayas where the major urban markets are located. Recent interviews in Mindanao indicate a common issue with the high cost of transporting agricultural products from the region to demand centers in Metro Manila and Visayas. This Policy Note reports findings from a recent research study on transport and logistics costs in Mindanao and recommendations to address the situation.
