Fostering competition in the Philippines


The market size of the logistics services sector in the Philippines is approximately USD 11 billion, accounting for about 4% of GDP.The Philippines rely heavily on maritime freight transport, with domestic cargo steadily on the increase in the last few year.
Recent infrastructure projects under the government’s Build! Build! Build! (BBB) investment programmes are expected to improve the quality of infrastructure and the overall logistics performance of the Philippines.

Fostering competition in ASEAN is a project that reviews regulatory constraints on competition in the logistics sector in all ten ASEAN member countries to identify regulations that hinder the efficient functioning of markets and create an unlevel playing field for business. 

It comprises two parallel components: competition assessment reviews of specific logistics sub-sectors and competitive neutrality reviews of small-package delivery services. The project is undertaken in partnership with ASEAN and funded by the UK Prosperity Fund (UK Government). 



Two reports, a competition assessment and a competitive neutrality assessment of the logistics sector in the Philippines were launched in co-operation with the Philippine Competition Commission on 29 January 2021.
