Philippines: Growth Rebound

The Philippines, one of the fastest growing economies in Asia, reported GDP growth of 6.9% from October to December, rebounding strongly from the prior quarter. Agriculture, industry and service sectors - the 3 pillars of the economy - all made solid contributions. We ask Luz Lorenzo, Head of Research at Maybank ATR Kim Eng Securities, what investors can expect in the year ahead.

A strengthening yuan is adding to the problems of Chinese policymakers tackling slowing growth. China's currency is effectively pegged to the US dollar. The rising value of the yuan against other major currencies is discouraging foreign investment and raising fears of deflation. We discuss exchange-rate policy with Hao Hong, Managing Director at BOCOM International.
