DTI Secretary Adrian Cristobal Jr. spoke before members of the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and dignitaries from various countries at the book launching of “Investment Policy Review of the Philippines,” in Paris, France yesterday (April 26, 2016). Cristobal said “This first OECD Investment Policy Review of the Philippines presents to the world the reforms our country has instituted since 2010 to achieve a better investment climate. The Philippine investment climate should benefit not only firms –whether foreign or domestic, large or small – but also society at large.” Cristobal assured the international community that these reforms which have been initiated will continue “not because of administrations but because it makes for good economics.” The “Investment Policy Review of the Philippines” provides a comprehensive approach in strengthening policies and institutions in the Philippines. The review is aligned with the recently updated OECD Policy Framework for Investment (PFI). The OECD is an international policy think tank composed of 34 member countries. OECD aims to promote policies that would support governments’ work to foster prosperity and fight poverty through economic growth and financial stability while taking into account environmental implications of economic and social development.
