DTI Webinar Series - Episode 1

Posted on August 20, 2021

The PH-EFTA webinar series graced by DTI Undersecretary Ceferino Rodolfo explains how the Philippines-European Free Trade Association free trade agreement opens new markets for Philippine exporters, MSMEs, and industries. He encourages businesses – big and small – to take advantage of the free trade deal that covers Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland.

This webinar series is part of the advocacy and awareness campaign to maximize the utilization of the Free Trade Agreement. Since the signing of the free trade deal in 2018, the trade balance shifted in the Philippines’ favor and exports rose by 8% in 2020 despite the pandemic. Switzerland is consistently one of PH’s top investors with approved investments reaching P1-B.
