Real GDP grew 6.7 percent in 2017. The IMF team projected that this rate will be sustained in 2018 and 2019 driven by strong consumption and investment. The Philippines¡¯ annual exports rose sharply in 2017 and became the main engine of economic growth, while imports continued to grow by double-digits. For companies in search of market diversification, Philippines is a very promising market opportunity!
