The level of infrastructure development in a country is a prime indicator of its progress and greatly affects a country's economic and social growth.
There are number of opportunities in the Philippines in key infrastructure sectors. The country peacefully conducted elections in 2010 and a new government with a clear mandate waas elected. The government of the Philippines recognizes that in order to stimulate economic growth, an enabling environment must be established for the private sector to make investments and as a result be able to provide increasing employment opportunities. Realizing that it has lagged behind in some significant aspects critical to economic progress, the government has fast tracked the implementation of a medium-term program focused on infrastructure.
