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.

Non-executive Director of Quorn Foods and Monde Nissin Vijay Thakrar on what drives and boosts UK companies in the ASEAN region.

"One of the big benefits of, again, partnering with Monde Nissin was that it’s headquartered in the Philippines, so it’s already in ASEAN. The 650 million people that are already there – rising middle class – that was an attractive proposition for us. And what we’ve done is that, since the partnership with Monde Nissin began, we started selling Quorn and indeed some of our other business products from elsewhere in the group in the Philippines. "

Mr. Thakrar was one of the speakers during the ASEAN@50 Business Forum on 11 October 2017. Please find more videos from the event here.
