Capital Markets Chartbook

The full report

The C&W Chartbook is a compilation of recent market indicators that provide an overview of the current economic conditions of the Philippines. Gross domestic product (GDP) growth in the first quarter of 2015 was slower than expected, as decreases in exports and investments, and below-target government spending weighed down the economy. Despite this, data showed that factors such as services, manufacturing, remittances, and consumption continued to grow, and the inflation remained low and within the central bank's target range. These, among other key variables, should be keenly observed moving forward, as the economy looks to recover throughout the remainder of the year.
