Khaled El-Yafi, Managing Director from The Berry Company also adds “I never anticipated that the Philippines would be one of our best, fastest growing markets.”

Nelson affirmed that the Philippine market remains competitive, considering the young and growing population of 110 million Filipinos, high interest in foreign goods and brands and actively embracing different cultures and trends. On top of this, benefits of economic reforms were also discussed and the likelihood for the Philippines to ratify its membership to RCEP. All of which are crucial initiatives by the government to open up the economy and increase the entry of foreign direct investments.
