Our Partner Broker’s Analysis

The Philippines’ 3rd Quarter 2016 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew by 7.1%, ahead of consensus estimates of 6.7%.

GDP growth for the quarter was faster than the 3rd Quarter 2015’s 6.3%.

The Philippines reportedly grew the fastest among Asian emerging economies such as China (6.7%), Vietnam (6.4%), Indonesia (5.0%), and Malaysia (4.3%).



Our Partner Broker’s Outlook

The Philippines is on track to hit its 2016 GDP target of 6-7%. The 4th Quarter 16 GDP (4Q16) growth should be at least 3.4% to meet lower-end of target.

We expect the Philippine economy to remain robust as it is firmed up by domestic consumption and investments.

In 4Q16, we see sustained domestic demand growth in as the holiday season approaches. Furthermore, growing remittances should further drive household consumption.

Government spending should remain strong, in line with the administration’s thrust towards infrastructure and rural development.
