As the country’s premier development financing institution, the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) continues to make its mark on the continuing saga of Philippine development.
Created in 1947 just as the country was coming out of war, DBP became a partner in the country’s journey towards rehabilitation and progress. In the decades that followed, DBP carried on with its catalytic role in nation-building. It pushed the direction of development from cities to the countryside, from agriculture to industry, from local to global. At each crossroads, DBP faithfully responded to the needs of the country and its people.
Today, DBP stands proud for its significant contributions in steering the country from the ravages of war towards spurring progress. It plays a pivotal role in shaping the economic landscape of the country with its continuing mandate to assist strategic and critical sectors of society. DBP carries on with its mission of providing the vital link between islands of the country. It has laid out an ambitious plan to modernize the country’s infrastructure and logistics system.
With this flagship initiative, DBP also seeks to tip the scales in favor of micro, small and medium entrepreneurs who stand to benefit from enhanced trade and investments. Rallying for the cause of stimulating the sustainable growth and development of entrepreneurs, DBP looks closely after their every need — from extending the much-needed financial boost to help them grow and expand their business to facilitating specialized technical assistance such as marketing, research and development, business advisory, and capability-building.
Sustainable development has always been DBP’s battlecry; hence, economic progress must always be attached to an important corollary: environmental protection. To gain credibility on its advocacy, DBP started in its own backyard and established an environmental management system that earned for it the distinction as the first Philippine bank to be ISO 14001-certified. Working with industry to prove that profit targets are compatible with preserving the gifts of nature, DBP provides credit and technical assistance to environmental enhancement projects.
DBP also recognizes that investments must be channeled back to the people for it is they who turn the wheels of progress. With a clear focus on improving the country’s social infrastructure, DBP supports projects in health care, education, housing, community development, and eco-tourism. With countless individuals, families, and communities benefiting through easier access to social services, DBP’s missionary zeal only becomes all too apparent.
