Statement

On the request of the PCCI


The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) welcomes any group, organization, or individual, outside the members of the IATF, to join the discussion of any of its meetings.

Officials of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) can therefore serve as resource persons on matters related to trade, business and the economy in the same way that IATF has invited health experts from different medical associations to give their inputs related to their field of expertise.

At present, the President’s Economic Team, namely the Department of Trade and Industry, the Department of Finance, the Department of Budget and Management, and the National Economic and Development Authority are members of the IATF and regularly join the task force meetings so the concerns of the business sector are forwarded and discussed.
