Investment opportunities in the Philippines include:


Not too long ago, the Philippines ranked among the world's top producers of gold, copper and nickel. The potential for the Philippine mining industry - often overlooked - is in fact beyond imagination. Out of the 30 million hectares of the Philippines, 9 million hectares or 30% of the entire country is identified to have high potential for mineral deposits. Yet only about 420,000 hectares or a mere 1.4% of the 30 million hectares are covered with existing mining rights. Many sources claimed that the Philippines may have untapped minerals worth between US$840 billion to US$1 trillion.

Most importantly, the Philippines now have a clear national roadmap for mining, supported by the three branches of government. We have also simplified processing procedures and reduced documentary requirements for mining approvals. Major companies like Xtrata, Anglo American, BHP Billiton and others are currently conducting its due diligence in various projects.


A total of P9 billion worth of subdivision and condominium projects in Cebu alone has been recorded by the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board Central Visayas Office from October 2009 to October 2010 a big leap from the estimated P2 billion projects recorded from October 2008 to October 2009.

Rising remittances from overseas Filipino workers (US$16.534 billion) and the burgeoning business process outsourcing (BPO) and tourism sectors in Cebu are fuelling a boom in Cebu’s real estate industry. Growth in Cebu’s real estate industry continued as is evident in the number of construction projects in the city.


According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the Philippines is the largest supplier of skilled health professionals in the world. It produces over 200,000 nursing graduates annually as per the Department of Labour and Employment (DOLE). It is reported that the Philippines supplies 25% of all overseas nurses worldwide. That leaves only a few attending to the needs of the large population in the country.

The Philippine population is relatively young. There are an estimated 101,833,938 (July 2011) Filipinos today, about 43% are aged 17 years old and younger. 13.8% of the population are aged four years old and younger, 12.7% are five to nine years old; 11.6% are ten to 14 years old; and 6.7% are 15 to 17 years old. The average Filipino male has a life expectancy at birth of 68.72 years, while the Filipino female has 74.4 years. The population is growing between 2 and 2.3 per cent annually.

In 1998, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has estimated that there is only one doctor for every 9,689 Filipinos and 909 Filipinos per hospital bed. That’s lower than Indonesia’s 1,429 people per bed or Myanmar’s 1,603, but higher than Thailand’s or Malaysia’s 500, Cambodia’s 476, Vietnam’s 391, China’s 345, Singapore’s 278, Hong Kong’s 215, Korea’s 208, or Taiwan’s 179.


Tourism in the country is booming, thanks to the warmth and hospitality of Filipinos and natural attractions, and historical and cultural sites. In the first nine months of 2011, 2.88 million tourists came to the country, 12 per cent higher than previous year. Domestic travel remains the backbone of the Philippine tourism industry.
