Event Details

The spread of the coronavirus pandemic has brought the global economy to a near standstill. In the Philippines, the economy shrunk for the first time since the 1998 Asian financial crisis while investments in the first quarter of the year plunged by 71%. Analysts warn of a technical recession and see businesses prioritizing their pandemic response strategies over expansion plans in the short- to medium-term. To prevent the economy from sliding further, the government has eased restrictions to allow business activities to operate while lawmakers introduced legislation on corporate tax reduction, countryside development, and digital taxation as stimulus measures.

Join us for a one-hour webinar with Undersecretary Ceferino Rodolfo, Managing Head of the Board of Investments as he lays out the government's investment strategy for the "new normal". Hear our guest speaker share insights on:

  • Policy support programs for enterprises affected by COVID-19;
  • Key details of the proposed 2020 Investment Priorities Plan;
  • Fiscal and non-fiscal support measures for eligible industries, and;
  • Other investment opportunities for the European-Philippine business community
