The Development Cooperation Framework outlines (DCF) the basis in which the Department of Trade and Industry engages with multilateral financial institutions, development organizations and representatives of partner foreign governments, in the pursuit of its mandate discussed extensively in the 2017 – 2022 Philippine Development Plan. These development partners provide pathways, expertise and resources that are relevant to DTI’s organizational outcomes, particularly in: Rural agri-based MSMEs, Inclusive growth, Gender and development, Green growth, Climate change mitigation and adaptation, Good governance, UN sustainable development goals, and Other areas of international commitment by the Government of the Philippines.

Partnerships in these areas are designed, developed and implemented in projects in a manner that promotes and strengthens specific sectoral and sub-sectoral outcomes that are implemented by different bureaus, agencies and partners of DTI.
