Mindanao’s economy humming

It could be better but no one is complaining. The economy of Mindanao has not been better for some time now. Previously Mindanao depended heavily on the price of corn. This has been good at about P12 a kilo. The shortage of corn from American Midwest because of diversion to ethanol production has prodded corn importing nations like South Korea to look for sources elsewhere. And a logical source is the Philippines. Right now a number of Korean firms are looking for large tracts of land to plant corn. But corn has been supplanted by other cash crops like sugar. The price of sugar is fairly good but it will still be next month that the milling season will start. But in the agriculture sector the real bright spots are the export products like banana, pineapple, and rubber. The price of rubber which was 5 centavos cup lump kilo a few years ago rose to 95 centavos. In this situation a couple of trees would be able to support a family. The potential is big for rubber plantations and the government is doing all it can. The danger is that prices can drop but this is unlikely since many of our rubber producing neighbours have shifted to even more lucrative products like palm oil. We have a number of Korean firms looking for land for palm oil. Exotic fruits like durian, mangosteen, lansones, dragon fruit, and meaty varieties of macopa, rambutan and others are all doing well.

One of the causes of Mindanao prosperity is the removal of the negative factor of fighting. There are still some hot heads like Kato and some NPAs but they are now operating in very limited areas. With peace the poor people of Mindanao can go ahead with their livelihood. (Our small micro finance operation, Milamdec, is lending over P400 million this year.) A good number of former NPAs have moved to trying to make a living, like raising of cat fish and planting corn. We have had a minimum of brown outs and with the FIT price of renewable enery big companies have gone in to power production and should bear effect in a couple of years. We should have adequate power in a couple of years which will improve productivity considerably. There are even small BPOs and IPOs operating in some cities of Mindanao. In contrast to the European unemployment, there is always a job for anyone who wants to work in Mindanao.

Another bright potential is the operation of mining companies. We have the potential of the largest copper mine in the world in Tampacan. It still has a long way to go but it is getting there. The three faults that pass through the Philippines all pass through Mindanao. Right now only the eastern fault and to some extent the western fault is being accessed. The middle fault has hardly been touched. There is a lot of potential in Mindanao mining but we have to see to it that more people share in its bonanza. We really have not been able to regulate small scale mining. But this is not only a local problem. It also is a worldwide problem. How to help the small miners and at the same time make sure they follow environmentally necessary rules.
Agriculture especially export agriculture has been good to Mindanao. Mining is potential. Power will soon be sufficient. The next is development of industrial clout. Then Mindanao can be of help to the rest of the country. emeterio_barcelon@yahoo.com

Basilan is the biggest rubber producer and the ff. provinces have sizeable production: Zambo Sur, Cotabato, Davao, etc.

The counterinsurgency on Mindanao should be addressed first by the government before it can do a giant leap. As someone who has spent nearly three decades in the area near the Promise land, I hope the government should focus more than the superficial fluff that all too often passes for news. Covering not only the blood and gore but offering the back stories behind the mayhem. Covering not only the guns but the goons and the gold as well.

I think they are doing it right.

Boost the economy first.

Most become rebels because of poverty although complicated ang issue sa Mindanao...it's not just poverty ...may political at religion issues din...remember that Muslims and Christians co exist in the area...and they have different idealism.

anyway here's an article about rubber production in Mindanao...it mentioned about the counter insurgency effort to encourage MNLF members to venture in rubber production.

Rubber Tree Propagation Gains Popularity
By NONOY E. LACSON
March 23, 2012, 3:50am

http://mb.com.ph/node/355163/rubber-tree-propagation-gain

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines – Rubber tree planting is now becoming popular in many provinces in Mindanao, particularly in the Central Mindanao region as evidenced by rows of rubber trees lining the roads of the areas.

It has been observed that the provinces in the central region concentrated in the planting of rubber trees based on the report of the United States Agency for International Development-Growth with Equity in Mindanao (USAID-GEM) Program.

USAID-GEM reported that for the period 2005-2010, overall rubber production has increased by about 25 percent in Mindanao, and went up by 50 percent in the Central Mindanao sub-region.

In order to obtain good production of rubber in North Cotabato, the University of Southern Mindanao recently partnered with the USAID to provide training on rubber tapping and bark management for the farmers in Aleosan town, and in the neighboring municipalities of Libungan and Matalam.

The training, which was implemented through the USAID-GEM Program, is part of USAIDs larger efforts to improve the competitiveness of growers across conflict-affected areas in Mindanao, and to enable former combatants of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) to diversify into high-value agriculture production like rubber tree plantation.

USAID reported that in New Panay, Aleosan, the trees, some of them over 60 years old, have witnessed the transformation of this once conflict-affected region into an emerging rubber production hub.

New Panay village chieftain Lolita Caputolan said “people started planting rubber here as early as the 1950s. Aleosan’s hilly terrain and agro-climatic conditions make it a good location for rubber plantations.”

It was learned that Caputolan’s father had just started the family’s rubber farm in the 1970s when armed hostilities broke out between two local ethnic groups.

“We had to flee to evacuation centers in Libungan and Midsayap. More than once, we had to stay away for two to three years from our village but every time we returned home, we found our rubber trees in relatively good condition,” she recounted.

“That’s the thing about rubber trees. They are resilient and need minimal care, unlike other crops,” Caputolan said.

As local economy and security conditions in the area improved over the years, residents focused more on developing their farms – and on realizing income from rubber production.

“Domestic demand for rubber continues to grow,” said Caputolan, a member and business adviser of the New Panay Farmers Multi-Purpose Cooperative, whose 40 members include former combatants of the MNLF.

According to government data, aggregate rubber production in the Philippines amounted to more than 395,000 metric tons in 2010, with production concentrated in Central and Western Mindanao, particularly in the provinces of North Cotabato, Basilan, and Zamboanga Sibugay.

Caputolan said the training provided farmers with improved techniques in rubber tapping, including the proper angling and thickness of the cut

My hometown is near in Dapitan City and yes,small miners are using mercury but I don't think Philex Gold Co. is using that.

Mindanao’s economy humming

It could be better but no one is complaining. The economy of Mindanao has not been better for some time now. Previously Mindanao depended heavily on the price of corn. This has been good at about P12 a kilo. The shortage of corn from American Midwest because of diversion to ethanol production has prodded corn importing nations like South Korea to look for sources elsewhere. And a logical source is the Philippines. Right now a number of Korean firms are looking for large tracts of land to plant corn. But corn has been supplanted by other cash crops like sugar. The price of sugar is fairly good but it will still be next month that the milling season will start. But in the agriculture sector the real bright spots are the export products like banana, pineapple, and rubber. The price of rubber which was 5 centavos cup lump kilo a few years ago rose to 95 centavos. In this situation a couple of trees would be able to support a family. The potential is big for rubber plantations and the government is doing all it can. The danger is that prices can drop but this is unlikely since many of our rubber producing neighbours have shifted to even more lucrative products like palm oil. We have a number of Korean firms looking for land for palm oil. Exotic fruits like durian, mangosteen, lansones, dragon fruit, and meaty varieties of macopa, rambutan and others are all doing well.

One of the causes of Mindanao prosperity is the removal of the negative factor of fighting. There are still some hot heads like Kato and some NPAs but they are now operating in very limited areas. With peace the poor people of Mindanao can go ahead with their livelihood. (Our small micro finance operation, Milamdec, is lending over P400 million this year.) A good number of former NPAs have moved to trying to make a living, like raising of cat fish and planting corn. We have had a minimum of brown outs and with the FIT price of renewable enery big companies have gone in to power production and should bear effect in a couple of years. We should have adequate power in a couple of years which will improve productivity considerably. There are even small BPOs and IPOs operating in some cities of Mindanao. In contrast to the European unemployment, there is always a job for anyone who wants to work in Mindanao.

Another bright potential is the operation of mining companies. We have the potential of the largest copper mine in the world in Tampacan. It still has a long way to go but it is getting there. The three faults that pass through the Philippines all pass through Mindanao. Right now only the eastern fault and to some extent the western fault is being accessed. The middle fault has hardly been touched. There is a lot of potential in Mindanao mining but we have to see to it that more people share in its bonanza. We really have not been able to regulate small scale mining. But this is not only a local problem. It also is a worldwide problem. How to help the small miners and at the same time make sure they follow environmentally necessary rules.
Agriculture especially export agriculture has been good to Mindanao. Mining is potential. Power will soon be sufficient. The next is development of industrial clout. Then Mindanao can be of help to the rest of the country. emeterio_barcelon@yahoo.com

Amazing to have that rate of return. What particular trading are they into?

That's only certain portions of Mindanao and not Mindanao per se.

And if mining is a way to boost economy, I wonder where our people are leading to.
