Fresh from posting a stellar 6.9% GDP performance for the first quarter of 2016 and outpacing China, the Philippines is cementing its foothold as one of the fastest growing economies in the Asian region. Spurred mostly by strong consumption and a growing middle class, the Philippines is undoubtedly an Asian economic bright spot.
