Plug into Growing Power of the Philippines
The Filipino people continue to make their presence known, becoming the 12th most populous nation in the world at roughly 94 million people. But it’s the recent growth that has caught everyone’s attention, as the population increased by approximately 28 million between 1990 to 2008, a 45 percent growth in that time frame. The population’s median age of 22.7 bodes well for the future real estate economy in the Philippines.
The Philippine economy is fairly diverse despite being an island country. Primary exports include semiconductors and electronic products, transport equipment, garments, copper products, petroleum products, coconut oil and fruits.
A newly industrialized country, the Philippines economy has been transitioning from an agricultural economy into a more varied economy based more and more on services and manufacturing. These higher-paying sector jobs are having a positive impact on reshaping the Philippines.
An Island Nation
The Philippines consists of 7,107 islands and its coastline makes it the country with the fifth-largest coastline in the world. The Philippines is the seventh most populated country in Asia.
With a growing middle class that’s still very young, the real estate opportunities in the Philippines are significant.
