Philippine Exporters Confederation, Inc.

The Philippine Exporters Confederation, Inc. or PHILEXPORT is the country’s umbrella organization of exporters that is man­dated under the Export Development Act of 1994 to strength­en the country’s export industry through its advocacy, export promotion and development programs. The Confederation is a non-stock, non-profit business support organi­zation borne out of the unification of the Philippine Exporters Foundation (PEF) and the Confederation of Philippine Exporters (COPE) in October 1992. 

To date, PHILEXPORT has an active membership of over 4,000, including companies belonging to 19 regional and provincial chapters and 24 industry associations that have affiliated themselves with PHILEXPORT. They are represented by 18 private sector Trustees in the Board elected every two years by their sectoral members.
