MCC’s Agricultural Markets Assessment for the Philippines
Integra was awarded an agricultural markets assessment project from the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) under Integra’s GSA schedule. The assessment and subsequent value/supply chain analysis identified agricultural products from the Philippines with high potential for return on future investment.
The team focused and delivered on three key tasks:
- Conducted a market assessment that analyzes the current market and identifies future opportunities for agricultural products produced and exported from the Philippines;
- Performed a value and supply chain analysis of selected agricultural products demanded on a domestic, regional and global scale;
- Recommend high potential value chains and their constraints for further analysis, as well as a methodology for how to do so.
This Philippines Market Assessment took place over six months from late 2015 to early 2016 and the findings helped the Government of the Philippines identify particular value and supply chains to focus on and support. Further, this project was conducted concurrently with a separate MCC project, awarded to Integra under MCC’s Finance, Investment and Trade Blanket Purchase Agreement to lead an agribusiness commercial, legal and institutional reform (AgCLIR) diagnostic in order to better understand the enabling environment for agribusiness of the Philippines.
