This is progress at its finest! With the investment rating upgrade that we bagged last year comes the no holds barred flowing of funds by foreigners to our country. Just to give you a background foreigners used to hesitate to invest in our country because of different reasons from infrustructure, uncertainity, political instability and so much more. But now we are seeing a different picture.
For the 1st 4 months of 2014 we have seen Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) surge from 6.7 Billion Pesos (same period last year) to 26.9 Billion Pesos as of April 2014! This just shows a renewed confidence by foreigners to invest in our country!
What caused the increase?
A lot of the foriegn counterparts (of the local units here) started to lend more money to their local businesses counterparts. This gives the local units here more capital to further expand. The local units we’re able to receive borrowings to the tune of 23.3 Billion Pesos! Not bad from the 3.6 Billion Pesos from last year.
What am I trying to say?
If more foreingers are putting more money here to further expand there busineses, this will make our economy more stable, this will create more jobs and this will help make the growth to be felt in every corner of the country. I really beleive from where we are now there is still so much room for them to bring in more money here! Moreover, if foreigners have a strong conviction to invest in our country. Then the bigger reason that we should invest further. This is our country and this is our opporutnity to take part of the growth, this is our opportunity to take part of something special and to see our country become great again! If you are in stocks or any mutual fund that is into equities this can give you a stronger conviction that what you are putting your money into is no fluke but rather is something that is willing to play ball with the rest of the world! I want you to propser and grow as our country is also growing and moving forward.
It can be done and you can be a part of it!
