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%)

  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

Risk Management in Import-Export

This business is definitely profitable, but without someone monitoring and filing important details and documents related to your trade leads is risking a lot of money and may end up in losses and waste of time.  

As  import-export deals are very important,  I developed my online monitoring and paperless filing services system through a website I will dedicate for you and your trade leads.  Per my experience in this business, I could not believe how many are scammed or cheated because importers or exporters are too busy considering the importance of risk management via simple yet very crucial… monitoring and filing.
Many are learning their lessons the hard way.   For importers to avoid waste of time and money,  one should not rely on  low price offer for both products and logistics.  It’s their decision but most of the low price offer means unreliable performance in service or product quality though their is an agreement.   Another thing is someone should monitor.  With the widespread cheating in the trading world, there’s nothing anyone can do if importer is not aware of possible circumstances if he/she is not managing the risk. No one can brings back the past to correct it but I think I can prevent further damages or losses through my e-monitoring system I personally developed per my care to importers and clients.
With my services and system, I will basically serve and support importers in risk management, monitoring and reminder in matters related to updates, ETD/ETA, due dates and cut-off of needed payment, valuable documents e-filing, reminders and countdown, and basically all details and filing needed.  Such will spare my clients from losses of much money and waste of time.  Nevertheless, I need the cooperation of both importers and exporters for the needed information to support them effectively and efficiently.   My system is paperless filing and efficient reminder where ever the client is, whenever he wanted to check on his trade.  
I desire to collaborate with Maersk as we recommend them to our client, especially to delicate fruit import-export.
I have to admit that I am at mystart-up stage and seek Investor for the needed computer systems and manpower and establish a full blown global servicing company monitoring import-export logistics trade leads.  If Maersk will invest on me, clients will have the monitoring support they needed and it means added profit and investment for Maersk.

State of the Union 2010

I usually get bored with political speeches until I heard Obama.  I really like what he uttered on his inauguration and in Egypt where he bridge the gap between America and the Middle East.  But, I was not that impressed with his state of union.  Actually, I see no wrong to his speech.  It’s just that I could not connect his state of the union address to “American dream.”   Although Obama mentioned his High-Speed Rail vision and he may have pleased the environmentalist, ultimately this project fall short of what known 20th century American Presidents have accomplished.  Let me refresh you with some (some are not literally connected to State of the Union):

Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Bombing of Tokyo Japan in retaliation to its invasion of Pearl Harbor, etc.) 

Harry Truman (First Atomic Bom, Creation of Central Intelligence Agency, etc.) 

Theodore Roosebelt  (The Construction of Panama Canal  – man made canal connecting Pacific and Atlantic Ocean)

 

Herbert Hoover (Construction of Hoover Dam to battle the great depression, etc.)

 

John F. Kenedy (Race to the moon, etc.)

 

Ronald Reagan (Star Wars Space Station, etc.)

Although Benjamin Franklin was not from the 20th Centrury, let me include him as his legacy paved the way why America became the land of the free.

I know this was just Obama’s first year as President and he still needs more time.  President Obama deserves the benefit of the doubt.  Nonetheless, I hope President Obama take into consideration the “American Dream” as it is the cornerstone why America is America today and is different from other countries of world. 

US President Barak Obama has so much achievement already for himself.  I won’t pretend to know it all but he seems to be in the news everyday since the US Presidential election.  Books written about him seem to sell like hotcakes and he even won the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize.  Only a number of presidents have this accomplishment (even world leaders).  I believed it will make Obama greater if he humbly follow the footsteps of the great American Presidents and   learn how they creatively face recessions and all sorts of war through inspiring extreme projects and impossible mission.

Another day in Afganistan

US military admited that the recent bombing in Afganistan that caused the lives of 8 people was being used by CIA.  It was an American base in the eastern Afghan province of Khost.  Worst attack since 2001. 

Meanwhile, in a separate attack four Canadian soldiers and a Canadian journalist were killed when their armoured vehicle was hit by a bomb in southern Kandahar province on Wednesday. 

It remains unclear how the Khost bomber was able to evade security at Forward Operating Base Chapman, which the Post said serves as an operations and surveillance centre for the CIA near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. 

He made it into a room being used as a fitness centre, where he detonated his explosive belt. The blast also wounded eight people several of them seriously, the Post reported. At least one Afghan civilian was also killed. 

At least one Afghan civilian was also killed. 

This was another setback.  US inteligence could not help but toface numerous accusationsd of multiple lapses over the past few days.
