Philippine Economic Latest News and Predictions

l  The Philippines last quarter of 2013  capped  its  strongest two years of growth since the 1950s with Gross domestic
    product rising at 7.2 percent.
- Philippine Statistics Authority.
l  “Despite the devastation wrought by super-typhoon Haiyan, the Philippines is expected to grow at above 6 percent in
    2014.  Post-crisis  reconstruction,  with  a  price  tag of $8.17 billion, will further buoy an already booming economy.
    By most  estimates,  inflation  is expected to stay at around 2-3 percent,  while the Philippine Central Bank (BSP) will
    most  likely  maintain its current interest rates for much of 2014. This means a steady upward trend in consumption,
    real estate, and domestic investments.”
- The World Post.
l  The  number  of  investments  approved  by  the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) in 2013 went up by 16.6
    percent  to  673  projects  from  577  in  2012  while  employment  generation  jumped  14.84  percent  despite  an
    11.48 percent  slump  in  the  value  of  these  investments,  which  are  measured  in  terms  of  their  project cost.
