The Report: The Philippines 2014

A diverse country with an intriguing history, the Philippines today is a multi-party, democratic republic, open to foreign investment, and integrated within the regional and international political and economic community. 

The presidency of Benigno Aquino III, begun in 2010, has seen continued economic growth and some important breakthroughs in long-standing conflicts. The country’s abundant biodiversity, natural resources and young population are assets that have been slowly getting recognition from investors, who have also taken note of its solid economic performance and recent credit upgrades. Translating these improving indicators into sustainable growth and inclusiveness, however, remains a key priority for the nation moving forward.
