The DTI is responsible for realizing the country’s goal of globally competitive and innovative industry and services sector that contribute to inclusive growth and employment generation.

Pursuant to the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2017-2022, we shall endeavor to reduce inequality and poverty by expanding economic opportunities in industry and services, and by increasing the access particularly of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), cooperatives and overseas Filipinos (OFs) to these opportunities. To attain these sector outcomes by 2022, we need to:

  1. Increase local and foreign direct investments
  2. Increase competitiveness, innovativeness and resilience of industries and services
  3. Improve access to finance, to production networks, and to markets
  4. Enhance productivity, efficiency, and resilience
  5. Ensure consumer access to safe and quality goods and services

These we accomplish through six major programs:

  • Exports and Investment Development Program
  • Industry Development Program
  • SME Development Program
  • Consumer Protection Program
  • Consumer Education and Advocacy Program
  • Good Governance Program

We commit to effect good governance by delivering public service that is predictable, participatory, accountable, efficient, transparent, and honest.
