Just because one still see carabaos, buffaloes and cows tilling the soil - it is not the norm... Research & Development should increase productivity and reduce the travel of farm to market routes (some instances indigenous insects hitch hike and get to be delivered in the foreign market - its flown in a jet)...
You could say nothing is impossible with scientific farming but the determinant is and will always be profitability. You will be exporting something if it becomes second nature growing them in your place and most of all----> the price is dirt cheap, compared to other countries' produce.

But, you could be a Belgian and have business in other countries and still consider your business as Belgian.

Belgium, Germany, Netherlands are banana exporters? Or are these coming from their colonies?

Netherlands, USA(except Hawaii and PR), Germany, and Belgium do not grow bananas. Most of their bananas are re-exports, probably repackaged then re exported to other countries. It's the same logic as Singapore being one of the largest exporters of Oil products. Tiny Singapore do not have oil obviously so it is imported then re exported.

Not quite. Singapore doesn't just simply import and re-export. It adds value through its huge refineries - import crude oil and export jet fuel, lubricants, diesel, gasoline, kerosene, bitumen, etc. Re-export is another thing though, for Singapore is an entrepot.

This is how Japan, Inc. and her 4 tigers do business.

Philippines is a bit late in the game. We do that in Electronics but the value-added is meagre. We need some diversity.

Correction lang.. it is "China and the 4 tigers + Japan" NOT "Japan and her 4 tigers". The 4 Asian tigers are also called 4 Asian dragons. "Dragons" because these 4 countries and also Japan are part of the Sinosphere(Chinese cultural influence)

The more Chinese a country is the richer it is. Malaysia (24% Chinese) is richer than Thailand(14% Chinese), but poorer than Singapore(75% Chinese) or Taiwan(95% Chinese). Philippines and Indonesia which is 2-3% Chinese happens to be the poorest.

South Korea and Japan themselves are highly influenced by Chinese culture from their rigourous education sector, to form of writing(Hanja and Kanji are Chinese characters), to their "no religion" conformist culture.

Buti nalang ngayon Province na tayo ng China. Sa wakas uunlad na ang Pilipinas... JOKE LANG.

Where did you get that info bro? Yung Japanese model ang pinagbasehan ng industrialization ng South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong at Taiwan. In turn, nireplicate ito ng China later on.

At secondly yang term na Four Tigers ang makikita mo sa iba't ibang literature mapa-encyclopedia, fact book, almanac, thesis, dissertation, etc. At no denying maging sa mga ekonomista ng mga bansang ito na Japan ang kanilang model nung nagsisimula pa lang sila.

Culture-wise syempre ang lahat ng mga yan ay parte ng Sinosphere. Pasensya na po kung na-butthurt po ata ang Sinocentrist ego niyo po, at since it's likely na Filipino-Chinese or Filipino-Korean ka base sa user name mo, hehehe.

Iba yung model ng Hongkong. Mayaman na Hongkong since 1950s pa lang dahil na rin sa British rule at yung pagiging gateway port papasok ng Mainland China. Ang close na related sa Japanese-model ay South Korea at Taiwan. Makikita naman sa current status nila pati na rin sa industry na meron sila.

Hindi naman yan Sinocentrist, totoo naman yan, another name ng 4 Asian Tigers ay "4 Little Dragons" or "4 Asian Dragons". I research mo yan at lalabas yan. Kaya "Dragon" is because these countries are part of the Sinosphere or heavily influenced by Chinese culture. Wala naman Dragon sa Japan kaya mali na sabihin mo na "Japan and her tigers/dragons".

Also, kaya mayaman ang mga bansa na yan is because culturally they are heavily influenced by the said culture... Education is a very big deal, people work hard like robots, and the culture is more conformist walang religion etc. Sana magaya yan ng mga Pinoy. For sure pag gayahin yan ng mga Pinoy yayaman ang Pilipinas, mga Pinoy kasi mahilig umasa sa ibang tao at lahat ng problema sinisisi sa iba. Pati kawalan ng trabaho sinisisi sa mga intsik. Hehe.

3 foreign groups express interest in Hanjin takeover
Quote:
MANILA, Philippines — Three foreign groups are planning to submit business proposals for the possible takeover of the shipyard facility of financially troubled Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Philippines (HHIC-Phil Inc.) in Subic, according to the Board of Investments.
Ceferino Rodolfo, BOI managing head and Department of Trade and Industry undersecretary, told reporters that Dutch shipbuilding firm Damen Shipyard Group, French firm Naval Group, and an American firm have promised to come up with studies and business proposals for Hanjin’s facility in Subic.
“They have to give this to the banks because they have control over the assets,” he said.
