The Philippines: Enhancing Economic Freedom and Momentum for Growth

Click here to view Mr. Tetangco's PowerPoint presentation.

Demonstrating a high level of resilience and overcoming the devastating impact of the massive typhoon Haiyan that hit the country in 2013, the Philippine economy has made a notable turn-around and become one of the fastest growing economies in Asia. Wide-ranging reforms to address structural weaknesses and improve overall economic competitiveness in the country have put greater emphasis on improving regulatory efficiency, enhancing regional competitiveness, and liberalizing the banking sector. Reflecting progress in such reform areas, the Philippines has charted an upward trajectory of economic freedom and registered one of the 10 best score improvements in the 2015 Index of Economic Freedom.

What’s the prospect for the Philippines economy in coming years? Join us as the Governor of the Central Bank of the Philippines talks about the current status of the Philippine economy and what’s ahead in the country’s ongoing economic transformation.
