Country Brief - Philippines 2017

The Philippines is a rapidly developing economy with a young population with an appetite for higher education, though it shows great regional and income disparities which are reflected in educational outcomes and opportunities. Growth is expected to be a steady 6-7 per cent per year in the coming years, though risks remain in the global economy, particularly in terms of slower growth in export markets and trade protectionism, and from a less stable domestic political situation. The country is also vulnerable to natural disasters and recent droughts have affected the important agricultural sector. Opportunities exist for international providers in the transnational education sector once a new regulatory framework is put in place.
