The Philippines Investment Forum 2017

Hon Nestor A Espenilla, Jr, Governor, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas
Vivek Pathak, Regional Director, East Asia and the Pacific, International Finance Corporation

There’s no doubt that the Philippines is enjoying enviable growth rates by global and even emerging market standards under the Duterte administration. The questions are – how will the Philippines rebalance its economy to become more inclusive and investment-led? How will the Philippines’ twin engine of remittances and BPO fare in an era of trade protectionism? Is there a public-private consensus over how we approach infrastructure development in the Philippines? And will the Philippines’ geopolitical play backfire?

Meanwhile, another important change of guard just took place in the Philippines with the appointment of Hon Nestor Espenilla, Jr as the Governor of Bangko Sental ng Pilipinas in July 2017. How will the domestic banking sector and capital markets evolve under the new central bank leadership to support the country’s growing and changing financing needs? And how quickly can the Philippines embrace digitalisation while maintaining the highest standards of financial governance?

The Euromoney Philippines Investment Forum will reconvene on 27 November in Manila where we will host a series of panel discussions that will bring together policy makers, financiers, investors and real sector businesses to address all the above questions.

Join us at the 6th edition of the Euromoney Forum to be brought up-to-date on the state of the Philippine economy and to exchange perspectives with a high-level audience of the Philippines’ onshore and offshore economic stakeholders.
