An Assessment of Trade and Industrial Policy, 1986-1988


  • Medalla, Erlinda M.


Since the Aquino Administration has taken over in 1996, further trade reforms have been instituted. Many more items are liberalized and barriers removed. This paper attempts to assess the state of trade and industrial policy and analyze the reforms that have been implemented. Trade and industrial reforms are then evaluated in terms of their consistency to the objectives and the feasibility and quality of their impacts.
