They maybe old fashioned but this kind of craft are close to the heart of people, especially the children and promote values.  As such, there is a market for these and if given the fund grant, it will take a long way in terms of income and return on investment.

Yes, machine made Christmas decors from China are cheaper but handcrafted are still prefer by many as they are natural and heartwarming.  If given the chance, I intend to establish a store for such soon.  If I will be supported by a grantee or investor, online shop is also possible.

I do not claim ownership to the actual designs and photos.  Images are excerpted.

Davao Philippines’Cavendish Bananas is known deliciously sweet.

  • Philippine is now the 2nd Largest Exporter of Bananas in the world.
  • 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:
  1. Japan: US$176.9 million (40.2% of total bananas imports)
  2. China: $109.2 million (24.8%)
  3. South Korea: $51.6 million (11.7%)
  4. Iran: $33.8 million (7.7%)
  5. United Arab Emirates: $19.2 million (4.4%)
  6. Saudi Arabia: $12.9 million (2.9%)
  7. Kuwait: $8.7 million (2%)
  8. New Zealand: $6.5 million (1.5%)
  9. Hong Kong: $5.2 million (1.2%)
  10. Singapore: $5.1 million (1.2%)
  11. Malaysia: $2.3 million (0.5%)
  12. Taiwan: $2.1 million (0.5%)
  13. North Korea: $1.7 million (0.4%)
  14. Bahrain: $1.1 million (0.2%)
  15. Qatar: $912,000 (0.2%)
  • Among the above countries, the fastest-growing consumers of Philippine bananas exports since 2011 were: Bahrain (up 822.2% in value), Saudi Arabia (up 638.1%), Malaysia (up 312.3%) and Kuwait (up 195.4%).Production system ranges from backyard to highly integrated operation with the latter catering to the export market.
  • Weak demand in the EU.
  • Total import of fruit by the Philippines from 2008 till 2013. The highest volume of imports occurred in 2012 reaching 240,477MT while the lowest was in 2008 to 187,265MT. The average annual growth rate was 3.68% during this time period.
  • Philippine farms produced a total of 8.65m tonnes of bananas valued at P117.15bn ($2.6bn) in 2013, down from a peak of 9.23m tonnes worth P108.13bn ($2.4bn) the previous year, according to PSA data. 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.
  • The past years, the yield dramatically been reduced due to destruction brought about by the strong typhoons that hit the country particularly the major producing areas in Mindanao. Another calamity was the most recent “El Nino.”  Nevertheless, these are not typical and Mindanao is not a typhoon belt.
  • Overall, the average annual growth rate was 0.26% and 16%, respectively for production and area for the six-year time period.
  • The farms are generally small in size (1-5 ha) with minimal care resulting to low yield.
  • Big farms are typically managed by Cooperatives, Organizations and Investment Companies

Conflicts between China and US are building up.

The cold war is over until it is over.  

It may have been over with US and Russia but conflict between US and China seems to start to build up.  This may sound like a Tom Clancy novel but the world seems to smell something out of Google’s announcement that they intend to pack-up in China in line with the recent attempt to hack their system.  Same with China’s pronouncement that they don’t need to learn from US with regards to internet.

Google underestimate possible loss if they pack-up in China.  But how important really is China to American economy, or perhaps the world?   As to gathered report, Kristin Forbes said, “China is the West’s greatest hope and greatest fear.”  Kristin was a former member of White House Council of Economic Advisers and one of hundreds of top officials and executives flocking to this winter resort for the annual World Economic Forum, which is taking place Wednesday through Sunday.  “No one was quite ready for how fast China has emerged,” said Ms. Forbes, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “Now everyone is trying to understand what sort of China they will be dealing with.” 

In the previous years, US dominate in spending.  These days, Chinese spending are being eyed as the key to global recovery.  China’s GDP could overtake that of the United States within a decade as per analysis of top economist.  And as speculated, China’s currency renminbi could start to challenge the dollar as the world’s reserve currency if the trend continues.  The renminbi, is frozen at an undervalued level, and Internet controls are stricter than ever — even as Google, one of America’s most prominent companies, threatens to leave.  The severe recession has fast-forwarded history, catapulting an unprepared world into a period of uneasy cohabitation between the United States, the No. 1 economy, and its eventual successor. 

US can no longer take for granted China as it is no longer emerging.  It has already emerged or risen up.

China Refuses to Play Over the Internet the U.S. Way

As per statement issued by the head of an online media association in Beijing on Saturday, China needs no lessons about its Internet from the United States.  This is in relation with how United States hit Beijing over information freedom. 

China was obviously offended by the speech made by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last Thursday.  According to Beijing Association of Online Media Chairman Min Dahong, the speech showed lack of respect for China.  Thus, it cannot accept conditions in relation to matters of “national security” or “social stability.”  Clinton’s speech criticized the cyber policies of China and Iran, among others, and demanded Beijing investigates complaints by Google Inc about hacking and censorship. 

The rift was in connection to Google’s accusation that China government is behind the hacking attempt on their system.  Google threatens to shut down its China unless their condition is taken into careful consideration. The threat includes stopping ofother Google’s services. 

Through its spokesperson, China reiterated that internet control is to stay.

The Clinton’s attachment with Haiti

One reason why the Clintons have sentimental involvement with Haiti is because they spent their honeymoon there.  Bill Clinton himself reveals it in one of his media interviews.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrived in Haiti in a Coast Guard C-130 transport.  They brought with them bottled water, packaged food, soap and other supplies. She is acting as the top U.S. relief coordinator.
