Philippines: Private Sector Development Challenges and Possible Ways to Go

dc.contributor.authorAziz Haydarov
dc.description.abstractIn the last decade, employment gains from economic growth in the Philippines have been limited, largely due to the underperformance of the private sector. Success of the services sector in general, and that of the business process outsourcing industry in particular, shows that reforms fostering private sector development can be effective. This working paper’s objective is to inform preparation of the Asian Development Bank’s country partnership strategy for the Philippines, 2011–2016. It suggests two specific measures to foster private sector development for inclusive growth: improving government processes and creating an adequate business environment. Special attention is paid to infrastructure improvement by advancing a framework for public–private partnerships. The paper also suggests an approach to foster innovation and knowledge development by the private sector to contribute to productivity-based growth. It ends with suggestions on directions, modalities, and approaches that can be used by the country partnership strategy to support private sector development.

  • ADB Southeast Asia Working Paper Series
    The Asian Development Bank (ADB) Southeast Asia Working Paper Series is a forum for stimulating discussion and eliciting feedback on ongoing and recently completed economic, sector, and policy work undertaken by ADB staff, consultants, or resource persons in the context of the operational work of ADB’s Southeast Asia Department. The series deals with economic and development issues in Southeast Asia and aims to enhance knowledge of the region’s development and policy challenges, strengthen subregional and country operations, and contribute to policy dialogue at the national and regional levels. The ADB Southeast Asia Working Paper Series is a quick-disseminating, informal publication whose titles could subsequently be revised for publication as articles in professional journals or as chapters in books. Maintained by the Southeast Asia Department, the purpose of the series is to disseminate the findings of works in progress to encourage the exchange of ideas. The emphasis is on getting findings out quickly even if the presentation of the work is less than fully polished.
