Underscoring the potential of the country’s export industry, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. called for expediting the completion of the Philippine Export Development Plan 2023-2028 to implement a ‘holistic plan that will align the priorities of stakeholders, produce quality export products and expand reach across the globe.’

“In this age of economic transformation, we note the important role of our local and foreign trade partners, organizations and stakeholders to the country’s export performance in the past years,” remarked the President during his attendance to the ‘Tanyag: An Evening with International Trade Partners’ at Shangri-La The Fort, Taguig City.

The Philippine Export Development Plan 2023-2028 details a three-year plan of providing a business environment that supports trade, growth and innovation, enabling domestic industries to establish connections in regional and global markets.

Since the start of his Administration, President Marcos Jr. reaffirmed his commitment to ensure the smooth implementation of initiatives that will make the country an ‘ideal player in the export sector’ such as creative high-value and competitive products and services capable of serving the needs of consumers and producers globally.

“In the years ahead, you will see that the Philippines will be a destination of choice when it comes to doing business where innovation, excellence and sustainability meet Filipino creativity and ingenuity to secure the needs of our time,” the Chief Executive said.

Spearheaded by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) through the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), ‘Tanyag’ is a formal export trade networking activity that gathers various government agencies, business leaders and trade diplomatic partners to showcase Philippine-made products and services to the rest of the world geared towards developing the Filipino brand of excellence.
