Philippines – Vietnam import export

PHillipines is the world's largest rice importer.

Vietnam is the biggest rice supplier to the Philippines,

Manila's decision to maintain its high import tariff for another five years with Thailand obliged Philippines to increase its imports of rice.

Under the Asean Free Trade Agreement (Afta)

Manila does not have to abolish import tariffs on rice, because it classifies the commodity as a "highly sensitive good".

However, it has offered Thailand an annual rice-import quota, on which no tariff is imposed.

Manila is also negotiating rice quotas with Vietnam, Pakistan, India, China, the US, Australia, Canada and El Salvador.

Bangkok-Manila, for example.

Can they really improve their commercial ties?

intra-area trade (trade between ASEAN members) is, relatively very limited, as countries involved in the project are more competitive than complementary.

But The non-trade barriers between Thailand and Indonesia are being lowered in investment and intellectual property rights protection,

Both are going to continue improving the economic cooperation in the agriculture (actually, because of the rice agreement, Thailand exports 300,000 tones a year to Indonesia), energy and tourism sectors.

Turkey and Colombia. CIVETS countries

Ankara-Bogota. Cali-Istanbul... Civets countries...

Turkey has taken advantage of the European Union without full membership (signed in 1995), to increase its industrial production destined for exports, that allows it to manufacture for tariff-free sale throughout the EU market, while at the same time benefiting from EU-origin foreign investment into the country. 

But Turkey is looking for new allies in the international context. 

the best way to protect yourself is with a greater interdependence between emerging countries.

That is one of the reason of negotiations in FTA

Both, Turkey and Colombia are considered as CIVETS (Colombia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey, South Africa)

 This list is comparable to the Next Eleven.

Peru is a rich country in mining, fishing and farming, and its exports to Korea have increased very much, but Peru has not established an industry that generates added value for lack of markets and capital, but the signing of the FTA could give Peru precisely these missing elements.  

Latin America is emerging as South Korea’s “second emerging market” in Asia.

Due to a similar trade deal, Korea’s trade with Chile has jumped 4.6 times since the agreement took effect in 2004.
