Primer on Doing Business in the Philippines

Primer on Doing Business in the Philippines

Despite the global economic challenges, the Philippines remains bullish as far as creating an ideal climate for both existing and potential investors. Part of the overall effort to achieve this goal is to provide relevant and updated information to local and foreign businessmen. The Board of Investments (BOI), the line agency involved in marketing and investment promotion, came up with this Primer to guide prospective investors in making sound investment decisions. The Primer includes the country’s laws, rules and regulations and policies that govern the procedural requirements
that should be followed. This Primer is intended to provide a better understanding of the Philippine investment regime and thereby entice more businessmen to invest in the country’s priority investment areas.
