The economy of the Philippines has a mixed economic system, and one of the newly industrialized emerging market economies of the world. In 2007, it was ranked as the 37th largest economy by the International Monetary Fund according to purchasing power parity. It was one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia, posting a real GDP growth rate of 7.3% in the year 2007. Growth slowed to 4.5% in 2008 as a result of the global financial crisis.

Important sectors of the Philippine economy include agriculture and industry, particularly food processing, textiles and garments, and electronics and automobile parts. Most industries are concentrated in the urban areas around metropolitan Manila, while metropolitan Cebu is also becoming an attraction for foreign and local investors in recent dates. Mining also has great potential in the Philippines, which possesses significant reserves of chromite, nickel, and copper. Recent natural gas finds off the islands of Palawan add to the country’s substantial geothermal, hydro, and coal energy reserves.

On January 31, 2008, Philippine 2007 GDP grew 7.3%, the fastest in 31 years: its economy grew seasonally adjusted 1.8%, faster than expected in the 4th quarter while inflation was tamed at 2.8% amidst sharp increases in oil prices; Frederic Neumann, HSBC economist stated that: “Evidently economic momentum is very strong, therefore if we see a slowdown in economic growth, it would only materialise in the second half of the year. We therefore see a reduced need for the central bank to cut rates aggressively now and we might see that today with a 25 basis point cut.”

In 2008 the nominal GNP Per capita was US $ 2,060 and the PPP GNP Per capita was US$ 4,120. The total nominal GNP was US $ 188 billion and the total PPP GNP was US $ 376 billion.Balisacan and Hill (2003 and 2007) give a comprehensive account of the Philippine economy during the past four decades. Specifically, readers may refer to the first chapter of the 2003 volume for a historical account of Philippine economic development, and the first chapter of the 2007 volume for an account of the regional and geographic development dynamics.
