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.

Invest in the Philippines #InvestPH
Startup founders and investors talk about why it’s a good time to invest, and grow a business, in the Philippines. The country is in a demographic sweet spot, with a young, connected, tech-savvy population driving the adoption of mobile and internet products and services. Couple that with six years of economic growth above 6% annually, and increasing FDI, the Philippines is an undervalued gem that just might yield quite positive surprises. Kickstart Ventures and some of their portfolio company founders share their insights on growth in SEA.
