6MVP on AEC readinessThe Ph government must now act to prepare local industries, especially the agriculture sector to compete in the new economic regime. If tariffs go down by the end of 2015 as mandated by the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement, then we have the ability to import sugar that is much cheaper from Thailand, so paano yun? It will kill the sugar industry. Will we let the sugar industry to get slowly killed by that kind of regime?

By making our sugar more efficient, we can be competitive, otherwise we will be out of business

7Will there be as a matter of regulation, a requirement to be accredited in the ASEAN countries? There lies the possibility of lack of mobility. Because one particular country, I would imagine, will try to protect its own doctors and nursesDTI Sec. Domingo & former NEDA DG HabitoAs of January 2010, 99.6% of all the products have already been traded at zero-tariffs among the ASEAN-6 members Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines and Thailand. This means that we are almost there, and AEC is not just coming in 2015, but is already here. Nothing earthshaking will happen at the end of 2015. (Domingo)

If AEC will indeed unleash a tsunami of ASEAN products into the Philippines, it should have already happened back in 2010. (former NEDA Chief Cielito Habito)What others sayprotecting the countrys agricultural and financial services sectors as well as the labor sector would be necessary for the implementation of AEC by 2015. While some businesses see the AEC as an opportunity, the integration would be more of a threat to local firms.

9I think that the Philippine industries are not ready yet (Nestor Tan, Management Association of the Philippines).

Sec. Baldoz on sugar workersTo keep pace with the competition, the government aims to increase the efficiency and competitiveness of the sugar industry. This can be done not only through an increase in production but also through the enhancement of productivity and empowerment of the sugar workers, small sugarcane farmers, mill workers and other workers in the sugar industry.Part of the HRD plan includes engaging small planters and sugar workers in policy- and decision-making; development and training of sugar workers through capacity building and skills training.

DG Villanueva on readinessThe agency has laid the groundwork to make the tech-voc education industry-driven and competency-based to allow flexibility and adaptability of its graduates to the changing work requirements. TESDA has continuously enhanced its partnerships with the private sector, industries and local government units to guarantee quality and relevant training and assure employment for the graduatesLet us not rest everything on fatalism and sa bahala na. Let us move forward knowing what needs to be done. I believe that our quality-assured TVET system is ASEAN 2015-readyKey MessagesChallenges, threats, opportunitiesOpportunities: FDI, market access, lower input costs, lower transactions costs, better quality goods & services at lower pricesBusinesses & SMEs: participation in production networksStrong competition: uncompetitive sectors Government Strategy: enhance competitiveness facilitate adjustment process to AEC integrationFirm strategy based on global perspectiveIndustry upgrading & restructuring: move up the value chainStrengthen institutional & regulatory environment

How to manage short term adjustment costs? Winners: firms that gain from market expansion & improved competitiveness, workers who get employed in growing sectors, government to collect higher revenue, consumers from wide variety of goods & services at lower pricesLosers: inefficient, uncompetitive sectors How to ensure SME survival chances? Lack of access to finance, technology, skilled labor, inability to comply with standardsWeak linkages to high tech sectorsPenetrating export market a major challenge
