Philippines as part of the ASEAN

AUNSince 1967, the Philippines has already been part of the Association of Southeast Asian Nation. Like any other ASEAN countries, the Philippines has been striving hard to build a better nation and a prosperous economy. In fact, despite the Ondoy and El Nino crises, there has been an increase in the GDP growth rate for the past quarters and would likely increase the full GDP growth target for this year. This goes to show that the Philippines has been doing a remarkable job in achieving its goals.
