DRN 1988 Vol. VI No. 5: The Philippine Tariff Reform Program: Is a Policy Reversal on Hand?

After a series of launching, shelving and relaunching, critical issues now face the Tariff Reform Program. Rumors have it that a reversal of the import liberalization is in the offing since the program has not been, according to some quarters, beneficial to the majority of the Filipino people. How true are these rumors? Does the program really work against the majority of the people? Is a policy reversal the answer? Will the committee on tariff-setting make a judicious decision on this issue? Dr. Medalla looks into these concerns. Her conclusion: retain the import liberalization program. Find the reasons why in this DRN issue.
