The Philippine stock index  .PSI  closed 0.4 percent higher, adding 1.04 percent for the week in its third straight such gain.
Infrastructure group Aboitiz Equity Ventures  AEV.PS  climbed 3.5 percent, its best performance in five months, while SM Prime Holdings  SMPH.PS  gained 1.3 percent.
Philippine exports expanded for a fifth straight month in April, with shipments to Hong Kong and China rising 36.8 percent and 26.4 percent, respectively.
