This chapter includes the following articles.
The Philippines’ construction industry is entering a period of strong growth, supported by government spending led by President Rodrigo Duterte’s signature Build, Build, Build (BBB) infrastructure programme. BBB is leading to ancillary construction and development around airports and seaports, especially residential and retail projects, providing the momentum stakeholders need to confidently plan for the future. The Philippines’ real estate sector has enjoyed robust growth in recent years, fuelled by remittances, rapid economic expansion and a comprehensive public infrastructure programme that has opened up new opportunities beyond Metro Manila and the affluent business districts of the capital. Actions set to further strengthen activity in the sector include reforms to the tax system and the establishment of a new regulator. This chapter also contains interviews with Jose Leviste Jr, Chairman, Atlantic, Gulf & Pacific; and Robbie Antonio, Founder, Revolution Precrafted Properties.
