The Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA) represents an unparalleled opportunity for the Filipino people. It cultivates significant trade and investment opportunities with the world’s second largest economy. The JPEPA also raises awareness of the Filipino’s innovative capabilities and encourages a view of the Philippines as an important and growing economy.
It is a historic deal for the Philippines, arguably its most important bilateral economic agreement in the last 50 years. It will deliver immediate benefits to Filipino exporters from day one, while promising greater dynamic gains over the long-term.
The JPEPA will help Philippine businesses become globally competitive and achieve success across numerous markets, not just Japan; dynamic gains from the Agreement – especially those flowing from enhyanced investment and deeper links with the Japanese economy – will flow to all sectors of our society, greatly contributing to the country’s efforts at alleviating poverty.
The JPEPA has been signed into law as EO 767.
