The Philippines: NEDA identifying supply chain issues to guide task force

  • THE National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) is evaluating the performance of supply chains during the pandemic and is hoping its findings will guide decision-makers on potential improvements.
  • In a briefing, Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) Spokesperson Karlo Alexei B. Nograles said the task force approved the recommendation of the NEDA “to pursue Supply Chain Regulatory Impact Assessments and to develop the Supply Chain Analysis (SCAN) Dashboard in cooperation with partner agencies and select private entities.”
  • “The outputs of the Regulatory Impact Assessments shall be referred to the IATF as a whole or any of its member agencies and the outputs of the SCAN Dashboard shall be referred to the National Task Force (NTF) COVID-19 for its consideration,” Mr. Nograles added.
  • According to the second report to Congress issued by President Rodrigo R. Duterte on how the government is using its emergency powers to deal with COVID-19, NEDA was planning to create a national supply chain plan for food, medical supplies, and other urgently-needed goods during the state of calamity.
