Additionally, the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) approved approximately P131 billion in investments from January to October 2023, representing a substantial increase of 232.45 percent from the previous year.


Rodolfo mentioned that many of the PEZA investments came from countries like Japan, China, and the United States, which President Marcos had visited in the past year, indicating a direct link between these visits and investment inflow.

The government's local reforms and preparations also played a vital role in attracting these investments, such as the removal of foreign equity restrictions on renewable energy projects and various high-level meetings hosted by the President.


Furthermore, these investments are helping the Philippines attract non-traditional investors from countries that had not previously shown strong interest in investing in the country.
