The Philippines is Ready for the ASEAN Integration

According to the People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP), the country falls short in some areas, but the Filipino workers are all set for the ASEAN integration next year.

Josephus Jimenez, President of PMAP, pointed out that Filipino workers are more competitive compared to workers of their neighboring countries. However, he said Filipino workers need to improve on behavior, character building, and values formation. He also said Filipinos should not worry about the ASEAN integration.

Meanwhile, PMAP Executive Director Rene Gener said the Philippines would need to work on its products by making them faster, more affordable, and better in general.

PMAP cited several issues that are similar to the findings of World Economic Forum - concerns in infrastructure, corruption, inefficient government bureaucracy, tax regulation, and restrictive labor laws.

The sectors that are expected to be at risk with the integration are agriculture, micro-small-medium enterprises, food manufacturing, as well as information technology. On the other hand, sectors that are seen to thrive with the integration are business process outsourcing (BPO), education, services, tourism, and electronics.
