USAID/Philippines commissioned the Duke GVC Center to undertake two studies for the Philippines Department of Trade and Industry Board of Investments in support of the country’s new industry development policies. The objective of the study was to understand the participation of the Philippines in various value chains. The first project focused on manufacturing GVCs and included aerospace, automotive, chemicals, electronics & electrical, paper and shipbuilding. The second focused on agricultural industries and examined the coffee, cocoa, rubber, mango sectors. The ultimate goal was to provide a set of recommendations to the government of the Philippines to enhance the participation and upgrading in the industries selected.
