Trade Promotion

We contribute to increasing and sustaining Philippine exports through business matching, international networking with foreign buyers and trade organizations, and assistance to overseas and local businesses. We spearhead in-store promotions, catalogue shows, and campaigns with foreign businessmen, as well as trade missions to and from the Philippines.

Investment Promotion

Global financial institutions have recognized the Philippines as a key investment destination. We join investment missions to introduce foreign investors to Philippine businessmen who are open to capital infusion. Once potential and prospective investors (including Overseas Filipino Investors) are identified, investment advice and counseling are provided to them.

Commercial Intelligence

Information is critical in enabling businesses and investors make an informed decision on commercial matters. To meet this end, we conduct market research for specific Philippine products, including commercial, industrial, and economic monitoring to benefit the government, industry players, and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) all over the Philippines.

Trade Negotiations

We recognize that trade policy provides the institutional setting within which trade and investment relations take place. We are the lead source of international business climate issues affecting trade negotiations and trade policy.

We also actively participate in multilateral trade engagements, within the forum of the World Trade Organization (WTO), as well as bilateral and regional Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) to harness trade opportunities for the Philippines’ economic development.

Services to Overseas Filipino Investors

We provide potential Overseas Filipino Investors trade and investment information and advice to assist them in their entrepreneurial or investment ventures in the Philippines.
