Business and Economic Update
Issue 01
Welcome to our new publication

The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), the economic integration of the 10 member-countries of the Association of South East Asia Nations (ASEAN), is just seven months away. People and investors are asking what will happen to their businesses and sectors, how trade, investment, energy, health, agriculture and other economic policies of the member-governments will affect them, positive or negative.

We recognize this need for new information and insights because we ourselves ask these and other questions. And while there are many literatures and publications which have been produced and will be coming out on this subject, we decided to produce our own views and analysis. We are part of the global knowledge community and we want to share this with our clients and partner organizations here in the Philippines and abroad.

With this maiden issue, we shall produce a regular, monthly publication tackling various sectors and issues, one or two sectors per month. We start with an overall, macro view of the economic performance of the Philippines, its Asia-Pacific neighbors and major economies on both sides of the Atlantic.

We hope you will find these information and insights, useful for your business decision making.
