The Philippines (Listeni/ˈfɪlɨpiːnz/; fi-lə-peenz; Filipino: Pilipinas [ˌpɪlɪˈpinɐs]), officially known as the Republic of the Philippines (Filipino: Repúblika ng Pilipinas), is a sovereign island country in Southeast Asia situated in the western Pacific Ocean. To its north across the Luzon Strait lies Taiwan; west across the South China Sea sits Vietnam; southwest is the island of Borneo across the Sulu Sea, and to the south the Celebes Sea separates it from other islands of Indonesia; while to the east it is bounded by the Philippine Sea and the island-nation of Palau. Its location on the Pacific Ring of Fire and close to the equator make the Philippines prone to earthquakes and typhoons, but also endows it with abundant natural resources and some of the world’s greatest biodiversity. At 300,000 square kilometers (115,831 sq mi), the Philippines is the 73rd-largest country in the world,consisting of an archipelago of 7,107 islands that are categorized broadly under three main geographical divisions: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Its capital city is Manila while its most populous city is Quezon City.

With a population of more than 98 million people,the Philippines is the seventh-most populated country in Asia and the 12th most populated country in the world. An additional 12 million Filipinos live overseas, comprising one of the world’s largest and most influential diasporas.Multipleethnicities and cultures are found throughout the islands. In prehistoric times, Negritos were some of the archipelago’s earliest inhabitants. They were followed by successive waves of Austronesian peoples who brought with them influences from Malay, Hindu, and Islamic societies. Various nationswere established under the rule of Datus, Rajahs, Sultans or Lakans. Trade with China also introduced Chinese culture and settlement, which remain present to this day.

The Philippines is one of the more dynamic markets in the global economy. Its general macroeconomic outlook improved significantly in recent years and the country has made promising headway towards more sustainable and equitable economic development.

Our natural pool of talents and culturally adaptable human resources position the country as the most value-for-money destination for investments in the Asian region. We place high-value on education that equipped our labor force with world-renowned technical competency and English proficiency.

Our generally liberalized policy environment and strategic logistics access point in ASEAN + 3 gives us that competitive edge.

Bright spots in the economy include BPO, tourism, mining, agriculture, bio-fuels and renewable energy, and infrastructure. The Philippines is endowed with rich and diverse natural resources that provide seemingly unlimited opportunities.

With national economies and supply chains becoming more and more intertwined, we strive to expand and strengthen international investment agreements with capital-exporting countries to safeguard investors against economic volatilities and hedge against risk.

The government is well aware of the need to focus on total investor-related solutions to nurture investments. Going from strength to strength, the country’s comprehensive strategy to attract capital inflows integrates secure and predictable economic conditions with business-friendly policies.
