Doing Business in the Philippines | Singapore | 27 April 2017

When : 27 April 2017

Where : Singapore

Jude Ocampo, Partner, Ocampo and Suralvo Law Offices affiliated with DFDL, was one of the speakers in the Breakfast Talk of the French Chamber of Commerce Singapore on “Doing Business in the Philippines” which was held in Singapore on 27 April.  Jude presented on the “Philippines: Economic Policy and Legal Update”  which focused on the current legal system, investment opportunities and tax reforms.

The well-attended and very informative seminar featured interaction between guests and speakers, who posed thoughtful questions.

The Philippines which occupies a strategic geographical location, acting as a potential gateway for investors to the Asian market, is currently one of the most dynamic economies in the East Asia region. Growth has been robust in the past five years, registering an average 6.2 percent from 2010-2015, significantly higher than average 4.5 percent annual growth in 2000-2009.

The new administration has reassured businesses and investors by continuing existing macroeconomic policies while reforming the tax collection system.

In 2017, the economy is expected to remain vigorous with household consumption, which should continue to be the main driver. Investment is still on the right path following the new government’s plan to dedicate 5% of its federal budget allocation to infrastructure development through public/private partnership.

Presented by three eminent speakers, experts of the Filipino market, this session will give you a practical overview on how to do business in the Philippines through business tips, experience sharing, legal and tax considerations, a series of case studies and key elements investors should address to mitigate their exposure to risks.
