The Philippine Investment Summit aims to bolster the Philippines’ standing in the global markets, seeks to raise and sustain investors’ interest and promote the country’s prospects for a ratings upgrade to Investment Grade, while featuring Dr. Nouriel Roubini, a world renowned economist, as its keynote speaker. Dr. Roubini as you can recall, promoted Indonesia’s standing in an investors’ summit in late 2011. His pronouncement ultimately led to Indonesia’s credit ratings upgrade in 2012.

After an impressive H1, Roubini Global Economics – an independent, global macroeconomic strategy research firm co-founded by Dr. Roubini, are revising up their Philippine outlook as one of the brightest

spots in Asia. Robust domestic demand, supported by government spending, will continue to be the main growth driver, Dr. Roubini said recently, offsetting weakness in the external sector.

Riding on an upbeat Philippine economic forecast that will surely lift the Philippines closer to Investment Grade come 2013 and with its bid to attract more foreign investments to boost job creation in the country, the Philippine Investment Summit is set to gather over 1,000 opinion and market leaders to showcase the impressive and vibrant landscape of the Philippine capital market and other investment opportunities included in the pipeline of prioritized programs of the Philippine public and private sectors, ensuring that the interest of global funds in the Philippines will be sustained by creating a safe and profitable investment environment in the country.
