Issues Concern: Reciprocity Rule in the Procurement of Goods
Request for the list of countries with which the Philippines enjoys reciprocal rights on matters of eligibility of its nationals in public procurement abroad.
[T]here is no list of countries which grant reciprocal rights to Filipinos with respect to government procurement. However, alongside definitive crucibles under the procurement law and rules, foreign bidders must present a Certificate from the relevant government office in its country to prove that Filipinos are allowed to participate in their government procurement opportunities for the same item/product.
