Promoting Responsible Supply Chains in Philippines


About the project


The OECD has worked with key Asian partners for a number of years to promote responsible investment and RBC. Under this new programme, implemented together with the International Labour Organisation and the European Union, the OECD will contribute its extensive expertise on trade and investment and on risk-based RBC due diligence to support in-country policy developments and action to create an enabling environment for Responsible Business Conduct (RBC), to boost industry capacity and to raise awareness of the importance of RBC.


The programme will be undertaken over 3 years (2018-2020) in partnership with China and five other partner economies, namely Japan, Thailand, Viet Nam, Philippines, and Myanmar.


Responsible supply chains in the Philippines


Co-operation with the Philippines will build on previous engagement with the country in the context of the 2016 Investment Policy Review, as well as the 2017 Agricultural Policies. A specific focus in the Philippines will be to promote business competitiveness and private sector action toward the SDGs in the agriculture sector through the implementation of the OECD-FAO Guidance for Responsible Agricultural Supply Chains.
