6th Joint Economic Briefing
Time & Location
About the Event
2020 has shown a collapse in global foreign direct investments of 42%, estimated at $859B, from $1.5T in 2019. The decline in developing economies measuring at -12% estimated at $616B.
The Philippines logged a total of $961M in net inflows of foreign direct investments in the first month of 2021, which, compared to January 2020, is higher by 41.5%.
With the current issues on vaccine roll-out, waves of pandemic risks, fragile macroeconomic situations in emerging markets, and the uncertainties of global policy investment, FDIs remain a key factor in generating more jobs and reinvigorating the economy.
As the Philippines joins other countries in the region for the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and the passing of the CREATE Bill, all are hopeful that the country will rebound better and faster.
