There are a lot of investment opportunities in the Philippines. Manila, the capital city in itself is a busy business district and it is a stone's throw away from Makati City, the country's premier business and investment capital. Skyscrapers and modern structures house multinational companies engaged in local and international trade.
Further south is the environs of the CALABARZON, named for the progressive provinces of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon. Industrial parks in this region present abundant investment and business opportunities especially in the manufacturing sector.
Aside from the Philippines' strategic location in Asia, the country has a growing consumer market. With a population estimated at 70 million and an annual population growth rate of around 2.2% a year, the country offers a large domestic market base for consumer goods and a growing market for infrastructure services and facilities.
Add to that a competent and highly-educated labor force, Filipino workers are recognized as one of the best in the world -- efficient, highly-trainable, sophisticated, and competitive.
