Because at this time it chooses to focus on other things such as infrasture to attract foreign investment - warships may look impressive but provide little job growth .

1st of all the claim is bullshite.

you are right of course. consider even if the filipins is 4th in ship building that it would take years and there would be significant growth in the country because of it right?

theyd at least have built SOME ships for their own use dont you think?

its a real head shaker and its just not true. its a pisser.

The infrastructure is a mess. The country floods every time it rains. Filth is everywhere, roads are pathetic. The waterways are complete cesspools. There's no money going toward infrastructure. If so it's being totally wasted. Mass corruption eliminate any massive foreign investment. The only things being built are shoe box condo units nobody buys.
