About the Event

The Philippine Government is the single largest procuring entity in the economy. Each year, the

Philippine government allots a huge budget funded by taxpayers’ money to acquire goods and

services for its projects in order to deliver services to its citizens. On 2021, based on the spending

priorities released by the Department of Budget and Management, the government allocated 1.107

trillion pesos under the Build, Build, Build (BBB) infrastructure program which will aid in creating more

jobs by investing in labor intensive projects, 203.1 billion pesos in response to the pandemic and

improving the healthcare system, and the rest of the national budget focuses on ensuring food

security, enabling a digital government and economy as well as helping communities cope and prevail

in these trying times.

Looking at the spending priorities of the Philippine Government, this offers the private sector including

SMEs and MSMEs opportunities to grow its business, expand its market and to tap the government

as a regular client.
