Both the PEDP 2023-2028 and PDP were aligned to achieve the PH sustainable development goals, with the former focused on export development as the lynchpin of the economy.
The two plans working together will serve as the platform for attaining the Sustainable Development Goals in 2030 and the Philippines’ AmBisyon Natin towards a prosperous, inclusive and resilient society by 2040,
Under the Export Development Act of 1994, the Philippines is envisioned as an exporting nation with the core of agro-industrial development and poverty alleviation. Noting the call for the Development of Exports as a whole-of-government approach, President Marcos Jr. emphasized the significance of partnerships and linkages within and among the private sector, government agencies and the international community.
The PEDP is aligned with the PDP strategic frameworks in the fields of Agriculture, Tourism, Power, Infrastructure, Finance, and others.
Following are the identified PDP strategies to which the PEDP is anchored:
- 1. Resolve key constraints to export growth and competitiveness;
- 2. Proactively monitor, and implement preventive measures and interventions for distressed firms;
- 3. Implement targeted, granular strategies to increase exports on three fronts:
3.1 Global Value Chain (GVC) Export Clusters;
3.2 Food and Agri-Marine; and
3.3 Labor Intensive Manufacturing.
- 4. Significantly diversify exports by fortifying backward and forward linkages;
- 5. Advance purposive, assertive, and forward-looking Free Trade Agreement (FTA) strategies;
- 6. Position the Philippines as the foremost supplier of tradeable intermediate services; and
- 7. Ensure integrated, whole-of-government commitment to deliver broad access to the National Quality Infrastructure (NQI). AOB
