PHILIPPINES ISLAND PARADISE - Coron Palawan

 

Coron Palawan is truly a Philippines Island Paradise! We explored Coron Island and flew the drone at Kayangan Lake and Twin Lagoon. It was the most beautiful place in the world. Travel & Leisure magazine rated Palawan the Best Island in the World for 2017 and we couldn’t agree more.

★ Euromoney's Philippines Investment Forum 2018

Time 8:00am – 5:30pm
Venue The Fairmont Makati,
Manila
Description The Philippines Investment Forum returns to Manila to a new location on the 19th October 2018.

To be held at the Fairmont Makati, over 500 attendees are expected to attend to hear the latest economic updates for the country, learn of investment opportunities and explore some of the hottest growth sectors predicted for 2019.

In-depth discussions on the day will include:

The annual Philippines Investment Forum economic review
Simmering trade disputes between world powers appear to have not dampened public spending and the ‘build build build’ policy is now in full effect, but can the Philippine government carry on its investment spending agenda against growing geopolitical headwinds? Our opening panel will address the key questions facing the growth prospects of the country and identify areas of concern as well as positivity to set the scene for the rest of the day’s discussions.

Inbound and outbound capital markets opportunities
The deepening of the domestic capital markets is pivotal for its long term sustainability. So what’s necessary to attract more international issuers and DFIs to consider it for their future funding requirements? And what will stop the capital outflows affecting foreign portfolio investments as seen by June’s numbers? This expert panel will use this session to dissect the outlook for the Philippines’ capital markets in 2019 and how your business can look to capitalize on future developments.

Digital finance opportunities in the Philippines
Financial inclusion is now a priority for emerging economies. The technology exists, it’s now down to policymakers and business leaders to adapt and adopt for the benefit of the economy and its citizens alike. How far along have the Philippines come in relation to adapting new technologies, from payments systems to remittance processing? What needs to change in the regulatory framework to allow for further adaptation of digital solutions? How do investors view the digital finance landscape in the Philippines?

Infrastructure funding
Whilst the Philippines understands the urgency of building up its infrastructure base, and the ‘build build build’ policy is at the forefront of government spending, there are still many bottlenecks to overcome. This panel will breakdown the domestic infrastructure markets challenges and opportunities, and review what the next stages are for investors and developers eyeing the opportunities.

Philippine growth sectors and what to watch out for in 2019
Beyond the Capital Markets and Infrastructure, where are the bright spots for investors looking at alternative sectors in the Philippines for 2019? Where else are investors looking? This closing panel will look back on the discussions of the day and explore alternative growth areas that may not be on the radar of financiers and investors yet, but could well be in the coming years.
