Philippine market prospect:
The president, Rodrigo Duterte, has overseen a harsh crackdown on illegal drugs and criminality since his inauguration in 2016. The uneven start to his tenure risks a deterioration in the political capital needed for major economic reform. In 2017-18 investment activity will moderate significantly as confidence in the prospects for reform under Mr Duterte dims. However, real GDP will still grow a healthy 6% on average throughout the forecast period on the back of robust private consumption. (Source: The Economist Intelligence Unit 2017)
