FDI Sources in the Philippines

Until 2012, the bulk of FDIs came from the US, followed by Hong Kong and Japan. By 2013 though, FDIs from the US and Hong Kong have significantly dropped, those from Japan remained stable. And there have been net outflows of investments from Singapore since 2012 and from the Netherlands since 2009.

The slack was compensated by rise in FDIs in 2013 from a tiny economy in the Caribbean, British Virgin Island, then Germany, Taiwan and Malaysia.
