Using a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model, it analyzes the impacts of removing tariffs on Philippine imports from members of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). It also evaluates the implications of exempting the agricultural sector from such changes. The simulation results suggest that agriculture as a whole is likely to benefit from the FTAAP. However, they also reveal potential losses for rice- and maize-related industries.
