Anchored on the core Values of Passion, Integrity, Creativity, Competence, Synergy, and Love of Country, and our Mission as the government’s main economic catalyst in Enabling innovative, competitive, job-generating, inclusive business, and Empowering consumers. These we do in order to achieve our DTI’s Vision 2022 of “A more inclusive and prosperous Philippines with employment and income opportunities for all”, and to achieve the goal to let Filipinos enjoy a strongly rooted, comfortable, and secure life in accordance with AmBisyon Natin 2040–the collective long-term vision and aspirations of the Filipino people for themselves and for the country in the next 25 years.
The FTEB serves as the DTI’s regulatory and implementing arm in enforcing compliance with the different Trade and Industry Laws, more particularly the Consumer Act of the Philippines (RA No. 7394), the Price Act (RA No. 7581 as amended by RA No. 10623), and the Law on Products Standards (RA No. 4109). It ensures that the objectives of these laws are met by performing its mandate efficiently, effectively and fairly, having in mind the welfare of consumers and legitimate businesses, a responsibility shared with the DTI Regional and Provincial Offices.
