Philippines wants more foreign investors in golden age of infra

The Philippines intends to invite foreign investors to take part in the country's ambitious infrastructure program during the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Cambodia this week, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said.

"It will be the first launch internationally of the Build, Build, Build program, otherwise known as Dutertenomics and announcing it to investors, as well as to international media," DFA Undersecretary for International Economic Affairs Manuel Antonio J. Teehankee said.

The economic agenda involves pouring as much as P8.2 trillion to finance the country's infrastructure needs over the next six years, with P860.7 billion allocated to big-ticket projects this year.

"Connectivity means infrastructure and logistics connectivity throughout the ASEAN region. This complements very well with the President's 10-point socioeconomic agenda, as well as the federal regionalism and sub-economic regions program in the Philippines, which is also to improve connectivity through logistics improvement and infrastructure improvement," Teehankee said.

Last month, Economic managers said the country is boosting efforts to make "new friends" and entice other countries to invest in the golden age of infrastructure.

According to Cabinet officials, China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, and Singapore are keenly interested in supporting the Philippines. — Jon Viktor Cabuenas/VDS, GMA News
