In recent years, the Philippines has proven to be a leading high-growth economy in Southeast Asia. As many economies faced challenging circumstances, the Philippines continued to prosper on the heels of strong consumption and growth across sectors. Concurrently, investor interest improved in early 2013 as shown by the continued record-breaking performance of the Philippine Stock Exchange. Much attention has been given to the national government's role as a catalyst in the growing optimism of the country's business potential. As the Philippines enters the final half of the Aquino administration, a final swan song, specifically in the infrastructure space, will certainly headline the Philippine growth story as the economy is driven to new heights.
