Deconstructing the Philippine Construction Roadmap 2020-2030

Emmanuel Lapus, Nadine Saddi, and Dave Devilles | 5 April 2019

Themed “TATAG AT TAPAT 2030”, the Philippine Construction Industry Roadmap 2020-2030 was launched on March 28, at the ASEAN Convention Center in Mabalacat Pampanga.

The roadmap is proof of the Philippine government’s holistic commitment in improving the quality of construction services consistent with principles of sustainability, increasing the number of globally competitive Filipino construction industry players, and equipping the whole project cycle with efficient and modern technologies. It is also expected to complement the government’s push for infrastructure development through the Build Build Build program.  – Ramon Lopez, Secretary, Department of Trade and Industry.


Aboitiz Construction, Inc. participated in the consultations and dialogues held in 2018 and early 2019 prior to the launch of the roadmap. Below are excerpts of ACI’s key takeaways:





Not everyone can be an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) entity.  One could do an EP and one could do C. Not everybody has the capacity or chance to grow big but there’s a lot of opportunities to specialize in your field. We should develop long term plans instead of short-term plans for projects between government and agencies to help contractors to grow and reap the benefits of this national construction roadmap.
