“We presented to the President the proposed Philippine Export Development Plan, which the (Department of Trade and Industry) DTI formulated pursuant to the EXport Development Act of 1994. As already mentioned, this defines the country’s export thrusts, strategied, programs, and projects and we sought the President’s approval which we got this just some of couple of additions to the plan,” ayon kay Pascual.
“The PDP aims to address challenges that we face in various sectors of the economy, particularly those sectors taht are involved in or potentially could be involved in exports. Our proposal is actually in line with the Philippine Development Plan, which was earlier released by the administration,” dagdag na wika nito.
“This export development plan will capitalize on export growth opportunities considering market trends, and the available or existing competencies in the Philippines, among our industries. It seeks to undertake an industry development-centric approach to make the Philippines a major player in the global economy and achieve sustainable development goals,” lahad ni Pascual.
Inamin naman ni Pascual na ang Philippine Export Development Plan ang “susi” para mapahusay pa ang export industry ng bansa.

” We can consider ourselves as laggards currently, so this plan will help us uplift the government’s or I mean, the Philippines’ performance in exports. It may not be to yet, match the levels achieved by the more-progressive neighbors that we have, but it will certainly improve the volume of our exports,” dagdag na wika ni Pascual.
