Braving It and Making It

Braving It and Making It: Insights from successful Investors in Muslim Mindanao by Cielito F. Habito

This handbook examines the experience of six private companies that had chosen to locate in the Muslim Mindanao, and had demonstrably benefited from it.  The six case studies deliberately sought to identify the enabling factors, useful insights and "secrets" that made it possible for the firms to thrive under the otherwise peculiar and often challenging circumstances with the ARMM.

It is hoped that the insights and lessons shared by these companies could help guide other potential investors to navigate the otherwise challenging investment territory that ARMM may initially appear to be.

Booklet 1 of the Mindanao Economic Policy Papers:  Energy and Power Situation in Mindanao Policy Environment and Impacts by Ella S. Antonio.

Conduct and preparation of the studies were administered by BTI and undertaken between August 2011 and July 2012.  Hence, any recent developments and changes subsequent to that period would not be reflected in the policy papers.

Financing Peace and Development in Mindanao

Booklet 2 of the Mindanao Economic Policy Papers:  Financing Peace and Development in Mindanao by Ella S. Antonio.

This paper reviews the historical flows and composition of financial resources to the island region to assess the empirical evidence relative to this sentiment.  It also determines how funds may be mobilized and financing gaps may be filled to catalyze Mindanao's development.  Special focus is given to the budgets of the ARMM regional government and its component local government unit, as this is where the lament is strongest.
