UK Ambassador to the Philippines Asif Ahmad’s presence at launching of Britpart in the country was an affirmation of his delight at this successful new venture of cooperation between the Philippines and UK, strengthening further trade and investment ties between the two countries. Strategically located in Southeast Asia, the Philippines is an ideal market for doing business, particularly for companies that are looking to set up a regional operation.
Last year according to a UK Chamber of Commerce report, figures from the UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and British Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (BCCP) revealed that bilateral trade between the two countries reaches around $1.8 billion per year. With a net foreign direct stock of over $5 billion, Britain is considered the country’s biggest European investor. BCCP also confirmed that several companies from the UK were actively looking for access to the Philippine market.
