Based on the latest OECD Economic Outlook for Southeast Asia, the Philippine economy is expected to grow by 6.2% every year between 2015 and 20195, the highest among the five largest economies in the region6. The Economist is forecasting a higher year-on-year real GDP growth rate for the Philippines at 6.6% by end-2015, also the highest among the six Southeast Asian nations7 it is keeping tabs on. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) also forecasts the Philippines to have the highest year-on-year GDP growth rate, at 6.4%, among the same cohort of countries.
The strong performance of the Philippine economy is largely driven by the industry and services group, with construction; manufacturing; financial intermediation; real estate, renting, and business activity; and other services as the primary growth drivers. On the demand side, increased household and government spending, together with an upsurge in capital formation, contributed to the economy’s solid showing.
