The Secretary's Page
The authority and responsibility for the exercise of the DTI mandate is vested in the Secretary who, like his predecessors, is a Presidential appointee who serves office at the pleasure of the President.

Gregory L. Domingo is the current DTI Secretary who, as the DTI Department head, has the authority and responsibility for the discharge of DTI powers and functions.

Specifically, his functions are:   
  • To advise the President of the Philippines on matters related to trade and investments, and industry, and on the promulgation of Department orders, rules and regulations, and other issuances related to trade, industry, and investments
  • To establish policies and standards for the effective, efficient, and economical operations of the Department in accordance with government programs
  • To supervise and control over all offices, functions, and activities of the Department
  • To delegate authority for the performance of any administrative or substantive function to any Undersecretary or other officials of rank at the Department
  • To ensure the clear delineation of the functions of personnel and constituent units of the Department, including its attached agencies to prevent task duplication or overlapping
Currently, under the Secretary are four Undersecretaries and three Assistant Secretaries.

The Undersecretaries assist the Secretary in performing his duties by supervising one of the four major functional groups of the Department, namely: Industry and Investments, International Trade, Consumer Welfare and Trade Regulation, and Regional Operations.

Specifically, the functions of an Undersecretary are:
  • To advise the Secretary in the promulgation of Department orders, administrative orders, and other issuances
