The Philippine Trade and Investment Centre London (PTIC London) is the commercial section of the Philippine Embassy in London and the representative office of the Philippine Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in the United Kingdom.
PTIC London’s task is to advance the Philippines’ trade and investment interest in the United Kingdom through trade promotion, investment promotion, commercial intelligence, trade negotiations and service to overseas Filipino investors.
PTIC London is part of the Philippine Foreign Trade Service Corps (FTSC) of the DTI’s Industry Promotions Group.
Who we are and where we are
PTICs, headed by professionals called Commercial Attaches or Counsellors are present in the 25 posts in 18 countries across Europe, the Middle East, North America, and Asia and the Pacific, are supported by a capital-based coordinating office.
We promote the initiatives of the DTI, specifically on trade and investment promotions as well as trade policy in key overseas markets.
As part of the DTI’s Industry Promotions Group, the FTSC works internationally to connect Philippine companies and investors with counterparts abroad.
Our international presence ensures continuous monitoring of Philippine trade and investments globally.
Our main role
The FTSC understands that the lifeblood of international trade relies on credible information and nurtured relations among investors and businesses. We cater to this need by bringing down the physical and cultural borders of doing business across countries. This is facilitated by a wide support network of consulate officers, trade associations, special interest councils, and our government partners in the Philippines and various trading partners worldwide.
