In May 2018, the EABA and its members visited Manila, Philippines to gain an understanding of what actions the Government is taking to meet their long-term development vision and how our members can help them meet their goals.
The Philippines is one of the most dynamic economies in Southeast Asia region. With increasing urbanization, a growing middle-income class, and a large and young population, the Philippines’ is expected to remain as a consistent annual GDP growth performer of 6.1% from 2018-2022.
Delegates from various multi-national corporations met with senior government officials from the Philippines Ministries of Finance, Trade and Industry, Transportation, Energy, EU Delegation to Philippines, and the Central Bank to learn about the government’s agenda, and to engage the government on its policy direction.
Thanks to all that took part in the mission!
