this is your first post in this thread stupid ape... and you guessed it comparing China to the Philippines
And I remember you BANANA fan........

Let see what happened last year WHEN CHINA IMPOSED AN ECONOMIC SANCTION AGAINST THE PHILIPPINES by REJECTING ITS BANANAS

http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/291828/e...

Philippine bananas overcame the restrictions imposed by China and the devastation of plantations in Mindanao last month, buoyed by higher shipments to traditional and alternative markets.

Banana exports grew more than 110 percent to 3.8 million metric tons last year from 1.8 million MT in 2011, Bureau of Plant Industry director Clarito Baron revealed in a speech during the bureau's 83rd anniversary celebrations on Thursday.

“There was a significant increase in volume in major importing countries like Japan and Korea,” Barron told reporters in an interview after his address.

The combined shipments of 1 million MT to Japan and South Korea more than made up for the
losses in China, said Baron.

Then the shipments to new destinations Indonesia, Pakistan, Jordan, and other Middle East countries gave the banana industry a much needed boost, he added.

The Department of Agriculture, the Plant Bureau's mother agency, expects the banana industry to further grow this year with the first ever shipment of 3,000 MT to the US happening in the first quarter.

The shipment by Dole Philippines, scheduled last December, was canceled after typhoon Pablo destroyed Cavendish plantations in Mindanao early last month to meet the export obligations to Japan and South Korea.

The US Department of Agriculture approved the maiden shipment and it was “a dream come true” for contract growers who have been hankering about the US market, Baron told reporters in a separate interview last October.

The Philippines posts higher FDI flows than South east Asian neighbors

The Philippines is among the countries in Southeast Asia which saw higher foreign direct investment (FDI) flows last year from a year ago even as total flows to the region declined, a United Nations (UN) agency said.

“Despite an overall seven-percent decline in FDI inflows to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), some countries in this group of economies appear to be a bright spot: preliminary data show that inflows to Cambodia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam grew in 2012,” the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) said its Global Investment Trends Monitor report.

The UNCTAD report showed FDI inflows to the Philippines reached $1.5 billion last year, 15.5 percent higher than in 2011.

I talked about the Philippines economy but these wu maos kept on changing the topic.
Please read the entire thread or at least the first pages before you comment. Be fair.
I did read a few pages back on this. If others are changing the topic, then change back to the original topic of this thread. You seem to like to encourage others on the themes of the Spratley Islands and communist China.

I will initiate this.....

The Philippines is still lagging behind with its ASEAN neighbors such as Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. However, there seems to be more investment in the building industry in the Philippines, even though alot of the money is circuling around only a small number of people. This however, may bring building standards higher due to the demand as many of the Philippine infrastructure needs to upgrade.

There is a small, but growing Middle Class in the Philippines, where they have a family member working in the BPO industries, such as call centres, accounts transactions, backround animation, web designing and other customer-based work. This is a small improvement that can aid a few more Filipino families to be uplifted into the more Middle Class status where they can afford a house, car and basic everyday needs.

The Philippine education system has invested in certain areas such as Info Tech, Medicine and Business. This can be good if the Philippine government assists in helping businesses in these lines of work in competing with the ASEAN. Tertiary Students who study well in these topics can benefit these businesses, and their own families. This is what Malaysia is doing, and with some success.

" A Hard Line on Immigration Reform Lurks in Obama's Inaugural Speech

By Elizabeth Dwoskin on January 21, 2013
businessweek.com
President Obama’s second inaugural address was heavy on the theme of unity. He used the word “together” seven times in the 15-minute speech. But tucked inside was a prelude to a contentious fight he’ll soon have with Republicans—the battle over reforming the nation’s immigration laws.

Obama couched his comments about the issue in uplifting language:“Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity,” he said.“Until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce, rather than expelled from our country.”unquote..

That post was in response to WHY did the ECONOMIST say that the Philippines is the strongest performing economy in ASIA right now and not CHINA.

Because the economy is going up and NOT GOING DOWN. Get it?

I had to defend the economist's analysis.

still dosent change the fact your talking about China... and talking about how others are trying to change the topic to China... when you did it yourself...

but since you brought up the point... China slow down, was by design and by the Chinese themselves

they spent 2 years trying to slow the market down from mid 2009 and finally doing so until last year...

this year as the Real Estate and inflation threaten to rise again... there is fears that the Government will tighten some more...

where as in the Philippines... all your kind is doing is spending OFW remittances... not saving the money and not putting it to good use except to buy things like a cell phone... you do nothing on it but text your buddies on...

so while GDP growth is great... its not going to last for ever...filipinos will need to plan for that event...

Chinese may not be spending enough...and saving too much

but you Filipinos are spending too much, and not saving enough...

guaranteed if the world economy turns for the worse, you wont be touting this GDP growth... Indios like you will be blaming the Chinese Filipinos for a bad economy, and for not sharing their money with you because you spent all yours...
