The Philippines banking sector has strengthened significantly in recent years, tracking general economic trends and benefitting from prudent measures put into place over time to boost capital and improve supervision, corporate governance and transparency. The local institutions that emerged from the late 1990s are stable and more wary of excessive risk and asset-liability imbalances. The challenge now is to build off this foundation and to further develop the sector so it can deal with new risks while funding economic growth. This chapter contains interviews with Amando M Tetangco Jr., Governor, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas; and a Roundtable with Nestor Tan, President, Banco de Oro Unibank (BDO); Gilda Pico, President, Landbank of the Philippines; Fabian Dee, President, Metrobank; and Cezar Consing, President, Bank of the Philippine Islands.
