Rappler Talk: DTI's Ramon Lopez on trade in the time of Duterte

MANILA, Philippines – Rappler talks to Ramon Lopez, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) secretary.

In the past 9 months in office, Lopez backed several initiatives for reform – from getting rid of the 5-6 lending scheme for microenterprises to supporting the proposal to raise car taxes.

Lopez is also in discussions with the Department of Finance to add new fiscal incentives in a bid to attract more foreign investors into the country.

How are these proposals going to affect Philippine economy – and how will consumers deal with these changes?
