The concept of regional development has evolved in the context of globalization. Regions now face emergent issues that ensure local socio-economic wellbeing even as they strive for growth through international trade and connectedness.

A firm practitioner of both horizontal and vertical coordination in its studies, ALMEC Corporation has espoused socio-economic dynamism beyond traditional administrative boundaries of cities, provinces, or countries and has promoted horizontal/vertical coordination.

In regional development planning ALMEC Corporation has been a paragon of sound and strategic utilization of a region’s economic, cultural, and institutional strengths molded through a well-defined and comprehensive strategy and vision of growth.

    Study of Artisan Craft Development for Rural Industrialization / Vietnam / JICA

    The Study of Artisan Craft Development for Rural Industrialization in Vietnam was developed with the philosophy that growth should be two-pronged impacting both the urban and rural areas. ALMEC Corporation designed the study to help the resurgence of the various traditional artisan crafts in rural Vietnam with emphasis on their roles as vital income sources and employment opportunities for the rural areas and improving the competitiveness of local products.

    ALMEC incorporated vital development strategies in the study such as regional development, production management, designing and marketing, a bias toward the protection of vulnerable ethnic minorities, community development in craft villages, etc. The study implemented various pilot projects nationwide which first tackled socio-cultural and economic issues. The synthesis of these issues where incorporated into the development of the master plan.
