Philippine Economy in 2008
« on: January 29, 2009, 12:18:44 PM »
Despite the reeling effects of the global financial crisis, the Philippine economy posted a 4.6 percent gross domestic product (GDP) growth for 2008.

Latest statistics from the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) show that the major growth drivers were trade, manufacturing, agriculture and fishery, construction and private services.

On the demand side, major contribution came from increased household spending aided by the growths in investment in construction and government consumption

For its part, the agricultural sector grew by 3.2 percent from 4.9 percent while industry also posted a 5 percent expansion from 7.1 percent and services grew by 4.9 percent from 8.1 percent.

The NSCB also said the economy continued to keep pace with the population growth in the fourth quarter of 2008 as per capita GDP grew by 2.5 percent from 4.4 percent; per capita GNP by 4.3 percent from 3.9 percent.

On the expenditure side, consumer spending reported a lower growth of 4.5 percent from 6.2 percent in 2007. General government consumption expenditure accelerated slightly to 4.7 percent from 4.6 percent in the same quarter last year. - PNA

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
