In addition to being a military general, Ramos was instrumental in the signing of the final peace agreement between the government and the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) led by Nur Misuari in 1996. During this tenure, Ramos implemented economic reforms intended to open up the once-closed national economy, encourage private enterprise, invite more foreign and domestic investment, and reduce corruption.

After leaving the government, he continued to consult around the world on matters of technological innovation and economic cooperation.
