During the recent Philippine Investment Forum 2013, President Benigno Aquino III gave a spiel before potential investors on the commendable traits of Filipino workers. He said the Philippine workforce can bring great value to a company, and if given the chance, they will be able to prove that they are worth investing in. Moreover, the basic characteristics that investors are looking for are innate in Filipinos.
President Aquino also said the Philippine economy is advancing and is now more capable of meeting the needs of investors.
Some of the sectors that investors can consider are infrastructure development (roads, ports, and airports), agriculture, which has been the key income-generating sector for 12.1 million Filipinos, as well as tourism.
