Export processing zones in the Philippines

An overview of Philippine EPZs

In the Philippines, there are at least five other types of protected industrial zones that have emerged over the last ten years, combining both economic and political insulations.

In a situation where workers are generally satisfied with working conditions at the zone, where their pay is empirically comparable to, or even better than, wages outside the zone, and where the proportion of migrant workers is low, there is a need for a long-term worker education strategy via popular communication media like radio or television supported by other practical initiatives that would attract workers toward the benefits of unionism.
