DTI Inks Tatak Pinoy Act IRR to Boost Filipino Products and Services Globally

On May 22, 2024, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary Alfredo E. Pascual along with Senator Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara, the conceptualizer and author of the Act and other notable signatories signed the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) for Republic Act No. 11981, also known as the Tatak Pinoy (Proudly Filipino) Act. This legislation aims to support and promote Filipino-made products and services globally.

The IRR provides a detailed framework outlining the roles and responsibilities of partnered industries. It focuses on key areas such as human resources, infrastructure, technology and innovation, investments, and sound financial management to ensure the act’s effective implementation.

The IRR was drafted by the DTI-Competitiveness and Innovation Group (DTI-CIG), led by Undersecretary Aldaba and Assistant Secretary Baluyut, in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development-Regulatory Reform Support Program for National Development (USAID-RESPOND), which provided technical support.
