WHAT WE DO
The Delivering Effective Government for Competitiveness and Inclusive Growth (DELIVER) Project
DELIVER Project is a 5-year program (2019-2023) which intends to be a set of technical interventions that will help address the problem of weak competitiveness and non-inclusivity of economic growth in the Philippines which are factors that constrain trade and investment, limit growth potential and productivity and affect sustainable economic development.
The interventions will be directed to 3 components; 1) mobilize domestic public resources and improve public financial management, 2) strengthen capacity for infrastructure development 3) boost the competitiveness of the micro, small, and medium enterprise (MSME) sector.
In DELIVER, REID Foundation is a subcontractor that serves as the key partner in leading activities under Component 2: Capacity for Infrastructure Development Strengthened and to provide support in activities under Components 1 and 3. The strategic activity areas for Component 2 that REID undertakes are geared toward strengthening the capacity of line agencies, expanding Public-Private Partnerships and strengthening interagency coordination through the infrastructure convergence programs with DPWH, DOT, DTI, DOTR, and others.
The Regulatory Reform Support Program for National Development (RESPOND) Project
This is implemented by the University of the Philippines Public Administration Research and Extension Services Foundation, Inc. (UPPAF). RESPOND Project is a 4- year program (2019-2022) which aims to assist the Philippines to improve its regulatory quality that will lead to enhanced competitiveness, and ultimately, contribute to higher levels of investment and trade, inclusive growth and self-reliance. The overall goal of RESPOND is to foster a more open and competitive regulatory environment for greater trade and investment.
REID Foundation will spearhead strategic activities addressing Behind the Border Non-Tariff Measures (NTMs) and other Regulations Affecting the Construction Industry. This includes providing technical assistance and conduct of assessment.
