PN 2015-28: Improving the Readiness of A&F Industries to the ASEAN Integration

This Policy Note presents the results of interviews with private stakeholders in the agriculture and fisheries sector to get their perception of the sector's readiness to the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). Their overriding message is for the government to provide stronger and more effective support to local producers to better prepare them for the AEC. High degree of preparedness of agro-based value chains is necessary to translate market opportunities into new sources of incomes for the country's agricultural and fisheries producers. One of the recommendations is to establish industry road maps with stakeholders to ascertain market opportunities and the needed resources to realize them.
