  11. 11. ►The (ISO 9001:2000-certified) arm of the Philippine Department of Trade and Industry ( that promotes investments, extends assistance, registers, grants incentives to and facilitate the business operations of investors in export-oriented manufacturing and service facilities inside selected areas throughout the country►Oversees and administers incentives to developers/operators of and locators in world-class, ready-to-occupy, environment- friendly, secured and competitively priced Special Economic Zones

  14. 14. Favorable tax regulationsThe Philippines is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a tax haven. But for theserious investor with a long-term outlook, the Philippines offers tax incentives, taxholidays for pioneer industries particularly in the Information Technology sector whereglobal growth is viewed in geometric terms, area or regional headquarters of offshorecompanies, a capital gains tax exemption for any sale or exchange of stocks forproperty, and an affinity towards the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). Facility in registering corporations and partnershipsThe Philippines has probably one of the lowest prescribed paid up capitals in the worldat PHP5,000, a Corporation Code allowing for the holding of bearer stocks with very fewrestrictions, requiring a minimum of only five (5) incorporators to register a corporation,allowing for the registration of foreign corporations and the appointment of arepresentative office without any prescribed capital outlay for infrastructure, with veryfew nationalization restrictions, and with an “express lane” for processing applicationsfor registration of corporations and partnerships.
  15. 15. A developing market with a hospitable investment climateThe late 1990s saw the Philippine stock market as one of the best performers in the AsiaPacific Region and into the millennium the country has remained to be one of the topexporters in the region. With several export processing zones and a long standing set oftax and capital equipment incentives for pioneer industries, and with a long-awaitedpolitical stalemate finally being resolved, the Philippines is once again a favoreddestination of investments in high-end electronics and semiconductors to footwear andclothes. Lately, the country has developed into a business process outsourcing and callcenter site in the heart of Southeast Asia. Competing with India with its fast growingindustries, major multinationals such as Dell Computers and IBM have set upoperations in the Philippines. Low cost of living and doing businessMore and more international companies are seeing the value of establishing low costglobal offshore centers in the Philippines. These companies are estimated to havesavings of about 30% to 50% of their usual operating costs in countries with highercosts of living.
  16. 16. Skilled and educated labor forceWell-known companies ranging from the I.T. to Semiconductor industry have seen theadvantages of establishing their offshore offices in the Philippines. Various I.T. firmssuch as Emerson, SPL, Siemens, and Intel have massively hired computer graduates inthe country to provide offshore services to clients worldwide. Aside from the I.T.industry, many Filipinos are skilled in the communications, medical, and legal field. Familiar and compliant legal systemThe legal concepts on property rights, business, contracts, government, personalrights, and other fields of law are offshoots of 50 years of American colonial rule. Withthe American and British legal models being the norm in international commerce andbusiness, companies will readily adapt to the legal system with very little adjustment intheir day-to-day operations.
  17. 17. Multicultural and diversifiedWith around 7,107 islands, this archipelago is host to 8 major dialects, more than 6religions, and individuals with diverse nationalities. Filipino Chinese businesscommunities and other groups of expatriates are scattered throughout the majorislands of the Philippines from Metro Manila, Metro Cebu, and the former locations ofthe military bases in Pampanga. English proficiencyThe Philippines is the third-largest English speaking country in the world, enabling itsmanpower to have a unique edge over neighboring countries in terms of labor quality.Having been educated in the American educational system with English as one of theofficial languages and primary medium of instruction, the Filipino worker readily adaptsto training and work across the spectrum of the labor market, from the semiconductorindustry and outsourced legal and business processes.
  18. 18. Vibrant democracyThe Philippines in the 60′s and 70′s was the showcase of democracy in Asia. Then cameMartial Rule under Ferdinand Marcos which underscored what was tamely referred tothen as constitutional dictatorship. The late 80′s to the present saw the countryregaining its more democratic and republican traditions, in the process opening itselfup as a haven and market for the free world. Strategic geographical locationFew countries in the Asia Pacific corridor enjoy a more strategic economic location thanthe Philippines. It is a few hours from the capital markets of Hong Kong and Shanghai inMainland China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Japan.
