The global and regional business community places very high hopes in the Philippines, with an outstanding GDP growth of approximately 6.8% in 2012 and expected to rise plus 6% in 2013.
A stable democracy, seemingly endless natural resources and a qualified and extremely young population. These are some of the brighter sides of doing business in the Philippines. But besides the regulatory affairs, incorporation, taxation and the bureaucratic and legal hurdles faced by entrepreneurs, how shall you do business in the Philippines? How should you trade your products and services, and become a successful entrepreneur in the country?
Historically, the Philippines is used to trading with foreigners and due to the recent economic boom, the competition and business actors in the market have increased significantly. It is no longer just the quality and the price of your products/services that make the difference, but also your knowledge about the country and its business practices
Therefore, before a foreign businessman can transact business in the Philippines and create a significant volume of business, one must observe certain practices that are commonly noted in the Philippines. As the saying goes, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”
