About Advocacy

Working with the government on the obstacles to market access and thus ensuring a level playing field for European companies is key to facilitating further investment and trade from the EU to the Philippines.
EPBN has 14 Sectorial Committees that meet on a monthly or bi-monthly basis and provide a forum for European companies to discuss issues and possible solutions, which are then elevated to the government through a series of advocacy tools.

Advocacy tools include letters to members of the government, drafting of bills, production of position papers on proposed reforms or current issues and a Position Paper, published every year.

These Advocacy Papers includes crosscutting issues identified by all Sectorial Committees and sector specific position papers, listing key recommendations on actions needed to support market access for European businesses and enable long term economic welfare for the Philippines.

EPBN is a project co-funded by the EU and implemented by a consortium of European Chambers of Commerce based in the Philippines.
