Wednesday, said billionaire investor George Soros.

and maintain the country's robust economic growth. Duterte is to begin his six-year term on June 30.  
Investors are also keeping a keen eye out for the Philippine central bank's policy meeting on Thursday, where the apex bank
is expected to keep key policy rates steady, a Reuters poll showed.
