Philippines

The Philippines is a newly industrialised country, whose economy has transitioned from one based on agriculture to one based more on services and manufacturing. It has a growing importance in Asia, mainly thanks to its business process outsourcing industry. Primary export products include semiconductors and electronic products, garments, petroleum products, and fruits.

The external payments position of the Philippines' economy remained strong on the back of resilient overseas worker remittance inflows and expanding IT-BPO sectors. The governance has also improved, resulting in the government’s expanded ability to face domestic and international challenges. As a result of improved governance and greater government and infrastructure spending, overall economic growth accelerated in 2012.
