Une étude produite par

The Philippine economy continued to excel during the first quarter of 2013 as it posted the highest GDP growth rate among Southeast Asian countries. Expanding by 7.8% from the previous quarter, the economy grew on the back of aggressive government spending, improving business confidence and high consumer expenditure. Moreover, manufacturing, construction, financial intermediation and trade, provided a strong boost in the growth of the economy. Inflation, on the other hand, grew slightly, averaging 3.2% for the first three months of 2013, but still well within the government target of 4.0%. The cause for the uptick was primarily due to higher food prices because of tight domestic supply conditions. Unemployment also rose during the first quarter of 2013, climbing to 7.5%. This translates to an estimated 3 million Filipino workers who are unemployed.
