The Bureau of Export Trade Promotion (BETP)’s on-going project, “Regional Interactive Platform for Philippine Exporters (RIPPLES)” , being implemented in partnership with the DTI’s Regional Operations and Development Group (RODG) and Philippine Trade Training Center (PTTC), is designed to develop new exporters and expand the country’s supply base of globally-competitive products and services in order to increase Philippine exports.
The project encompasses all regions and provinces of the Philippines, and focuses on each region’s key industry sectors.
The RIPPLES aims to keep exporters and potential exporters updated on international market access requirements, product trends and developments, and other international trade information that they need to maintain competitiveness. Project participants are extended company-level assistance to make potential exporters export-ready; and existing exporters, more competitive in the global market. Product development assistance, trainings on website development & e-commerce, product exposure in national & international trade exhibits, development of new markets, business matching with prospective importers through trade lead generation and/or participation in organized Inbound and Outbound Business Missions, are among the assistance extended to participating companies.
