If you have a business that is ready for expansion or a new business you want to locate in Southeast Asia, then the Philippines is an excellent choice. Many different kinds of businesses have moved into the Philippines over the past several years because of its sustained growth, modernization, low cost of doing business, and competitive wages of the local labor force. The Philippines is closing in and may surpass Singapore in the not too distant future as the leading financial hub in Asia.
Finding the Right Neighborhood
With both low-cost and high-cost areas, the Philippines has a much larger percentage of English speakers than other countries with the same kind of large, inexpensive labor force.Also, the Philippines has a large, well-educated labor force, particularly in technology and business. Try to rent space in an area where there are already willing, educated workers.
The More Expensive Office Space Options
The Philippines has been growing stronger and stronger from a foreign investment that has found increasing value in setting up offices in the Philippines. If you have a budget for it, then consider the central business district.
