Video: The Philippines Moves Forward
This article is posted under General Information.
It’s a great time to invest in the Philippines, do you agree?
According to analysts, the Philippine economy is finally on an upswing, after over a decade of stagnancy – and now the country has a real potential to move forward and become an Asian tiger.
Below is a business feature produced by the Asia Business Channel that’s currently being broadcast on Channel News Asia.
It shows how progress was possible for the country, and how we as a nation, can propel the country further forward in the coming years.
It’s an optimistic, 23-minute video that shows the country’s successes and the challenges we face ahead.
Personally, I believe there is one crucial ingredient that must also be considered if we want the Philippines to continue its growth, and that is uplifting the financial literacy of the people.
The country’s wealth will just be confined within the nation’s rich and privileged; unless the poor and the middle class start to learn proper money management and act on sound investment strategies.
When that happens, only then, can we truly say that the whole country is moving forward.
