Just a quick post – the Philippine growth rate came out today – 6.3% from the last quarter ending in December and 5.8% for 2015. Article here. It is important to note that that growth have and will come from within — domestic consumption is strong, the election year will have government spending on infrastructure and it didn’t get mentioned in the article but services segment of the economy is a boost — services that is not only availed of domestically but also internationally earning US dollars, with the business process outsourcing industry – call centers and knowledge industries. Big banks like JP Morgan (US), Deutsche Bank (Germany), Macquarie Bank (Australia) have IT and back-office processing here that serves their global business.
This allows us to understand the transition that China is trying to accomplish.
1. Away from manufacturing which is dependent on other countries (export markets) buying from them
2. Consumption which facilitates the “exchange and circulation” of money / wealth among the locals.
In the case of the Philippines, the falling stockmarket – as a result of the “risk-off” attitude especially by foreign funds – is getting very attractive. This is because the companies that make up the stockmarket is rooted on the domestic consumption and services. None of those mining (of base metals) and oil — commodities that have been on a deep slide given the China and global growth problem. Many sectors like BPO industry, export (agricultural / garments) and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) are also benefitting from the strength of the USD. Tourism sector (again boosting domestic consumption, services like in restaurants and USD) is also growing contributor – who can resist beaches and fun in the great outdoors, people’s hospitality and English widely spoken which are the many attractions of the Philippines.
