Philippines' Geo Economic Dominance in Southeast Asia Explained!


Discover the remarkable journey of the Philippines, an archipelago with over 7,641 islands, as it becomes a “New Asian Tiger” in the ASEAN region. With a young and dynamic workforce and a GDP growth rate of 6.0% between 2020 and 2023, the country’s economic rise is driven by sectors like Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), tourism, and remittances from Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).
