tThe Philippines has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, but income inequalities, a growing population and being on a typhoon path mean it remains vulnerable
Welcome to StrategicRISK’s 2014 Philippines Risk Report. In a series of articles and analysis within these pages, we will be looking at some of the key risks that are affecting businesses operating in one of Asia’s fastest-growing economies.
From devastating natural catastrophes to increasing regulatory enforcement, many of the issues examined in this report were discussed at length at StrategicRISK’s roundtable event, which was held in Manila in June and attended by the country’s leading risk managers and brokers.
These risk professionals represented a broad cross-section of some of the largest and most important businessesoperating in the Philippines and
included representatives from both the state and private sector.
This report is produced with the support of Zurich, and with assistance from the Pan-Asia Risk and Insurance Management Association (PARIMA).
PARIMA’s aim is to strengthen and enhance the risk culture in the region through the creation of opportunities for dialogue within the risk-management
community. It is a mission that sits comfortably with the aims of our publication and we will be working with PARIMA members in the future to bring
you comprehensive coverage of Asia-Pacific’s risk landscape.
