Much has been written about the relationship between agricultural and industrial developments. Agriculture development precedes industrial development because there should be a strong agricultural base to boost industrial growth. From the Philippine experience, how does agricultural development affect industrial development? This study provides thorough analysis of this issue by identifying the development strategies that are conducive to rural linkages and balanced growth. It also explores how rural linkages operate with a focus on its two-way direction.
