The basic task of the Medium-Term Philippine Development Plan
(MTPDP) for the period 2004-2010 is to fight poverty by building
prosperity for the greatest number of Filipinos. The MTPDP is the
roadmap through which we shall achieve the 10-point legacy to create
jobs, promote livelihood opportunities, strengthen the educational
system, attain fiscal stability, decentralize development, intensify the
delivery of public services and achieve national harmony.
As accompanying documents of the MTPDP, the RegionalDevelopment Plans (RDPs) spell out the respective regions contributions to the achievement of the 10-point legacy. The RDPs in line with the MTPDP, contain specific strategies, programs and activities to promote
regional productivity that would sustain overall economic growth.
