Philippines progresses with game-changing reforms
“Digital transformation continues to be a hot topic, and those bringing a solid track record in this area should garner more advantage”
Carla Lastimosa , Director , Michael Page Philippines
One of Michael Page’s newest focus markets in Asia-Pacific, the Philippines presents significant opportunities for our partners This is in view of its recent return to stability and growth as well as the possibility of an even stronger decade ahead
With a 10-year average GDP growth of 5.5%, and the World Bank forecasting growth of 61% and 62% in 2020 and 2021 respectively, we believe our growing range of focus markets will continue to show promise, in spite of mixed predictions on the global front
Fortunately for the Philippines, lower inflation rates and a host of business incentives have seen more global businesses enter the market particularly those in the Technology, Manufacturing and FMCG areas We foresee continued strong opportunities for returning talent who have relevant international experience to enhance the domestic workforce
As with all markets, digital transformation continues to be a hot topic, and those bringing a solid track record in this area should garner more advantage; as will those with proven technology experience. This is especially evident in a market where Finance and Sales disciplines express interest in hiring ex-tech company professionals with experience in the mobile and e-commerce spheres Hiring managers in the Philippines will continue to seek experts in Finance, HR and Marketing, particularly those with data analytics and trend-spotting abilities These hires are typically able to identify market opportunities with enough
confidence to excel at stakeholder management
In addition, we firmly believe that business leaders with a convincing growth story combined with sound organisational development strategies will see more success in employee retention
We look forward to helping you expand your business horizons even further in the year ahead

TO: HIs Excellency Ambassador A Lagdameo,
Philippine Ambassador to The United Kingdom
16th June 2020
We want, on behalf of the British Chamber of Commerce Philippines and the U.K. arm of the Philippine British Business Council, to express our organisations’ admiration for the work of Philippine nurses and carers in the British healthcare system since the start of the virus. We know that thousands of Filipinos have worked tirelessly through the epidemic supporting hospitals and care homes, and that tragically some thirty have already lost their lives as a result.
Please could you pass on our deepest condolences to the relatives and friends of those Filipinos who have passed away, and our thanks for the work of so many Philippine workers whose hard work, commitment and bravery has helped to ensure that our health system continues to function.
Peter Beckingham, Chair, Philippines British Business Council, London, UK.
