  • The majority of these shipments are destined for the growing regional markets of China, the Middle East and, to a lesser extent, Russia to satisfy their demand for fresh produce
  • Exports of Philippine bananas for the last quarter of this year are expected to rise following China’s lifting of restrictions on Philippine exports early this month.
  • Below are the 15 countries that accounted for the highest dollar value worth of bananas exported from the Philippines during 2015:

Concerted efforts over the past two decades to expand banana production have led to the commodity becoming the country’s most valuable crop as well as its most profitable agricultural export.

An Apple A Day

An Apple a day did not keep Steve Jobs’s doctors away. Nevertheless his ailment did not stop his creativity and passion from fulfilling his destiny till to his death bed.

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life.”  –Steve Jobs

Hardware-Software Development Business Plan

A very Competitive and Sustainable Business involving

JAPAN TECHNOLOGY

Such is the latest Business Plan I formulated for an Entrepreneur in the Philippines.  Quite different and very challenging as my previous works were mostly agriculture in nature.

This business need not long introduction.  Bank and Investors knew that technological innovative business is a potential global money making machine and are both viable and sustainable.  Unlike other business plan, this manuscript is graphically presented for banks’ and investor’s easy reading and analysis of its details pertaining to viability, income potentials and return on investment.

The proponent’s company is  a sole proprietor  since 2005 by a former OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) sub-contracting for a company in Japan with focus on Central Research and Development.

The business mentioned in this business plan is a highly innovative Philippine-based company engaged in the development and assembly of I.C.-based components for a wide range of applications. With an array of highly-competent Japanese and Filipino consultants, it offers product development services and prototyping.

The Entrepreneur is actually my cousin.  He previously worked in a high tech company in Japan and he is into embedded systems programming since 1991 and has brought with him Japan technology in the Philippines.  With this, his company now sub contracts to the company he came from.

The main or core technology of this business is hardware and software development for embedded systems.  All of which involved very high technologies that the owner and his workers possess.  Such is their unique selling proposition and edge for being very competitive and sustainable.  Thus,   very   few   companies can offer what the proponent is offering in Philippines.

The     Entrepreneur is   responsible  for product design, development, integration, and company management of the daily operations. In addition, a team-oriented and customer-focused staff will support the management team, and in-house developers will create and maintain the hardware/software applications and websites requirement.

Other related requirement

If any investor is interested, I will gladly introduce him/her to the entrepreneur or I can make the same feasibility study or business plan whatever purposes the investor intends it for.

If given the chance, I desire such kind of business be establish in Singapore but only as proxy office wherein the manufacturing office will be in the Philippines.  Office in Singapore will serve only as trading or sales office.

After Christmas Sales Galore

Christmas rush is over until it’s over. 

To those who missed the Christmas shopping rush, After Christmas Sales is also an event to watch.  In the US, different merchandise stores such as Walmart, Best Buy, Macys, Sears Target and Amazon give great deals from inventory they have not sold yet for the Christmas season.  They will offer excess inventory from electronics to household items to toys, etc., for less price. The usual marketing proposition:  “Savings or Discounts” for the customer

s tight budget.  It is already been a tradition and it is being done year after year after December 25.  These best deals and offers starts on December 26, 2009 and may last until January 1 and 2 of 2010 (other even extends).   You may want to check their website for details.  

Better to check now your budget and plan to make a list before you go to your nearest store that offers After Christmas Sales.  If you are not in American, other giant stores in other countries also practice After Christmas Sales.  Better to check the website of the giant store near you.   Many stores across the globe replicate this marketing strategy as people really come and buy.
