Arangkada Philippines Forum Video Presentations

These were the video presentations that we painstakingly produced but unfortunately were unable to share yesterday at the Arangkada Forum due to the technical problems that we encountered. We do hope you enjoy watching them here:

This is Arangkada in a nutshell: reforms needed to get the country to move twice as fast!

A proven strategy to achieve higher investment, exports, and jobs is concentration on sectors of the economy where the Philippines has competitive advantages and high potential. With its position within ASEAN, with its large, youthful English-speaking population, and with improved access through new ASEAN FTAs with large and fast-growing markets, the Philippines is situated to attract large amounts of foreign investment and to create millions of new high-quality jobs in these seven sectors: Agribusiness, BPO, Creative Industries, Infrastructure, Manufacturing & Logistics, Mining, and Tourism, Medical Travel, and Retirement.

The Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce of the Philippines estimates that in the next decade making important reforms benefiting the Seven Big Winner Sectors could result in more than US$ 75 billion in new foreign investment, create around ten million jobs, and produce over one trillion pesos in new revenue for the Philippine government.
