Invest In The Philippines, Invest In Ayala Land
At the press briefing attended by the Japanese media, Mr. Aquino opened his presentation by saying: “Our launch has come at the best time. The Philippines now stands out in the region with one of the most resilient economies and is positioned to continue its high level of growth into the years ahead.”
He also gave the Japanese media a thorough introduction to what Ayala Land stood for, and its role in nation-building: “Ayala Land has been recognized as the largest, most experienced and most trusted full-line developer in the Philippines, with numerous local and international awards and recognitions,” Mr. Aquino said. “It has been instrumental in shaping the country, establishing urban showcases in key economic centers such as the Makati Central Business District, Cebu Park District, Bonifacio Global City and other emerging hubs. The rise of these economic centers and other emerging hubs, all master planned by Ayala Land, have boosted the Philippines’ standing for commercial and residential investment. ALI has diversified into a full line of real estate products and a strong presence in retail, offices, hotels and resorts, construction and property management.”
All three major international rating agencies including the Japan Credit Rating Agency now regard the Philippines as investment grade, and the nation’s bonds and equities continue to draw investors. Demand has also helped make the peso the best-performing currency in Asia.?
“Japanese investments in the Philippines are a sound idea not just because of our growth and resilience,” Aquino explained. “But also because they benefit Japan by helping diversify your country’s investments in the region, consistent with your latest strategy.”
Aquino summed it up with these words: “The opening of the Ayala Land Premier Showroom and office in Tokyo establishes our firm commitment to strengthen the partnership between our countries.”
