Located at the heart of Asia and within four hours' flying time of the major capitals in the world, the Philippines is the most strategic location for firms who want to access the ASEAN Free Trade market of more than 600 million people or the major economies of East Asia namely China, Japan, and Korea.
The country is also placed at the crossroads of many international shipping and airlines, making it a great platform for integrating global supply chains of businesses.
“English skills of Filipino workers is another key advantage compared to their counterparts in Vietnam, making communications between employers and employees much easier. There are many strikes in Vietnam, but within the economic zones in the Philippines, strikes will never occur if we follow PEZA regulations.”
“Filipinos are more open than Taiwanese and Chinese, resulting in more creative designs and products. Paul-Yu Industrial Corp. has already opened five factories in MEZ since 2001 and intends to expand further in the near future. The infrastructure in Mactan is really favourable to business.”
“The quality of workers in the Philippines is far better than that of Thailand and approximates that of Japanese workers at a fifth of the cost. About 80% of our work force are women “because they are better than men.” I am Happy that local schools produce very good engineers.”
Filipino workers have fast learning curves because of two things – their English language proficiency and their being better educated.
Filipino craftsmanship blended with Japanese technology can build world class vessels equal in quality to the best in the world.
Through my past experience of working in 17 countries’ people, Filipinos are the best to work together with the Japanese. They are always with a bright smile, hospitable, obedient, hard working, and loyal.
The work force is very good.They provide a lot of value-added to our customers.
Filipino engineers are among the best in the world. Most of our engineers come from less fortunate families who have no option but to excel.
Filipino workers are optimistic and obey the instructions of their employers.
90% of our employees speak very good English, from the manager, down to the supervisor and to the operator level.
We are highly satisfied with Filipino workers who are very bright, obedient, aggressive, cooperative and render holiday work.
