ADB has long supported reforms in the Philippine investment and business climate through knowledge products, TA, policy-based lending, and investment projects. The investment climate was one of four broad policy reform areas covered by the DPSP, which supported the government's efforts to reduce the transaction costs in business regulation and improve infrastructure policy. A TA project attached to subprogram 1 of the DPSP produced options for regulatory review and studies on the farmer to supermarket supply chain, investment incentives, competition policy, and the difficulties experienced by the youth in their transition from school to work, among other analytical reports. The P3F developed under the DPSP specified policy measures for the government to implement in 2009 2011, to sustain the policy dialogue on the investment climate and further advance reforms (Appendix 2).
