Philippine Export Development Plan (PEDP) 2015-2017

The Philippine Export Development Plan (PEDP) 2015-2017 is one of the most important elements of the International Trade Strategy that forms part of the Philippine Development Plan (PDP). It lays out a three-year plan of providing a business environment supportive of trade, growth and innovation that would enable domestic industries to establish their niches in regional and global markets, in turn, raising the status of the Philippines in the global value chain.

The plan was approved by the President last 4 February thru Memorandum Circular No. 91 and directing 14 government agencies to collectively work and review all relevant policies to facilitate exports and eliminate those that hamper its free flow:

Department of Trade and Industry (Lead Agency);

Department of Agriculture;

Department of Energy;

Department of Environment and Natural Resources;

Department of Finance;

Department of Foreign Affairs;

Department of Health;
