Arise, Philippines! – Snapshots of The Euromoney Philippine Investment Forum 2013

Happy Easter, Filipinos! God has blessed our Easter with enormous hope and confidence that the country will continue to arise from its long economic slumber.

The 2013 Euromoney Philippines Investment Forum held at the Peninsula Manila last March 12, 2013 was a major success. Testimonies are the snapshots taken by my friend and OFW UsapangPiso Forum advisor Carissa Patag of Abacus Securities Corporation as one of the 600 delegates to this year’s forum and the recent investment-grade rating driven by optimism that international investors have for the Philippines.
