WHY WE’RE THE BEST CHOICE FOR YOU
For the FTSC, reliable information and strong ties between investors and companies are essential components of international trade.
We meet this demand by reducing the physical and cultural barriers to doing business across borders. In addition to consulates, trade organizations, special interest councils, and our government partners in the Philippines, we have a large support network of consulates, trade associations, special interest councils, and diverse trading partners globally.
Trade and investment promotion is a priority for the Philippines.
Promotion of goods for sale. The support we provide to both foreign and domestic companies, as well as business matching, networking, and international networking, all contribute to the growth and sustainability of the Philippines’ exports. When it comes to promoting our products in-store or through other mediums like catalogs or campaigns involving international business leaders, we’re the go-to people.
Incentives for Investing.
The Philippines has been acknowledged as a leading investment location by global financial institutions. In order to participate in investment trips, we
find and connect willing entrepreneurs in the Philippines with international investors. Investors (including Overseas Filipino Investors) are given investment advice and counseling once they have been recognized.
The ability of organizations and investors to make well-informed business decisions is largely dependent on the availability of relevant information. This is why we perform market research for specific Philippine products and track commercial, industrial and economic trends to help the government, industry players and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across the country.
Negotiations in international trade. International commerce and investment are only possible because of the framework provided by trade policy. International business climate issues have a direct impact on trade talks and trade policy.
For the development of the Philippine economy, we also actively participate in international trade engagements, such as the WTO forum and bilateral and regional Free Trade Agreements.
Overseas Filipino Investors’ Services. Information and guidance about Philippine business and investment opportunities are some of the services we offer prospective Overseas Filipino Investors.
WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW
A capital-based Coordinating Office supports our presence in 30 significant cities across Asia and the Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and the Americas. Our global reach means that we are always aware of the state of Philippine commerce and investments.
Trade and Investment Centers in the Philippines are managed by a single coordinating office located in Manila.
