Republic Act 7844 series of 2004 mandates DTI to craft the Philippine Export Development Plan (PEDP). The said plan will be anchored on the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2018-2022 and the 10-point socio economic agenda of the President.
The Philippine Export Development Plan 2018-2022 will be a continuing plan of the previous PEDP (2015-2017) that will implement existing, as well as new export strategies and programs to boost export performance and achieve the export target of $122-130B by the end of the term.
The plan will embody the country’s export thrusts, strategies, programs and projects and shall be jointly implemented by the government, and export stakeholders. The PEDP is one of the most important elements of the International Trade Strategy.
Essential to the development and crafting of the PEDP is the effective information gathering and networking consultation among the stakeholders. The Department of Trade and Industry’s Export Marketing Bureau will Conduct said consultations
