The Philippines Department of Trade and Industry (abbreviated as DTI) is the executive department of the Philippine government tasked as the main economic catalyst that enables innovative, competitive, job generating, inclusive business, and empowers consumers. It acts as a catalyst for intensified private sector activity in order to accelerate and sustain economic growth through comprehensive industrial growth strategy, progressive and socially responsible trade liberalization and deregulation programs and policymaking designed for the expansion and diversification of Philippine trade, both domestic and foreign.
The DTI, through the Construction Industry Authority of the Philippines (CIAP), and the Philippine Contractors Association (PCA) launched the Construction Industry Roadmap 2020-2030 on 28 March 2019 with the theme ‘Tatag at Tapat 2030’, which will ensure the sustainability of the construction industry’s growth and its competitiveness. The roadmap will also complement the government’s massive infrastructure program, Build Build Build. The roadmap aligns its goals and strategies with the Philippine Development Plan and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. It highlights the vision of the Philippine Construction Industry to be a global partner in building nations by 2030 through the achievement of the integrated four pillars: Productivity, Sustainability, Globalization, and Institutions.
