The Philippines is a newly industrialised country, whose economy has transitioned from one based on agriculture to one based more on services and manufacturing. It has a growing importance in Asia and was able to weather the 2008/2009 global recession. This was due to its minimal exposure to troubled international securities, low dependency on exports, relatively resilient domestic consumption, and a growing business process outsourcing industry. Primary export products include semiconductors and electronic products, garments, petroleum products, and fruits. The country’s credit rating has been raised to BB+ with S&P recently raising its outlook to positive. The external payments position of the economy remained strong on the back of resilient overseas worker remittance inflows and expanding IT-BPO sectors. The governance has also improved, resulting in the government’s expanded ability to face domestic and international challenges. As a result of improved governance and greater government and infrastructure spending, overall economic growth accelerated in 2012.
