PHILIPPINES – Presidential Directive Strengthens Alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanism in Gov’t

The President of the Philippines has placed under the Office for Alternative Dispute Resolution (OADR) the management and development of dispute resolution programs for the Executive Department in a bid to further enhance the business environment in the country and hasten resolution of cases involving government projects.

This new directive from the president is in complement with the an earlier issued Executive Order which provides for the mandatory inclusion of ADR in all contracts and agreements for public-private partnership (PPP), build-operate-transfer (BOT) scheme and joint venture entered into between the government and private entities and local government units (LGUs).
