Henry Panlibuton of Action for Enterprise presented "Value Chain Selection: Tools and Tales" at the 9th installment of the Linking Small Firms to Competitiveness Strategies Breakfast Seminar Series.

During his presentation, Panlibuton laid out the key steps in selecting a value chain for a donor-led intervention as well as the tools used in the process. He placed particular emphasis on the criteria used in the selection process including competitiveness, the scale of the potential impact, and the degree to which the intervention will meet cross-cutting objectives. Panlibuton then used specific cases in China, East Timor, and Tanzania to illustrate this process in context and highlight the results to which it led.
