Developing a Best Practice Global Value Chain Framework on Fisheries Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs)

The project is aimed at promoting the growth and development of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) participate in the fisheries global value chain in the APEC region. MSMEs in the fisheries sector have not been actively participating in the global value chain given the many supply and demand side constraints - lack of capital, technical know-how, technology, access to markets, barriers to trade, among others. The lack of local participation means local communities miss out on vital economic and social benefits leading to many social problems.The global value chain workshop on fisheries MSMES in developing APEC economies looks at analyzing the global value chain (GVC) for fisheries MSMEs in the APEC region to improve competitiveness, enhance market access, increase trade and investments flows, identify challenges and reduce barriers to trade. It is proposed that a best practice global value chain framework to improve competitiveness of the fisheries MSME into the global food value chain is developed.
