The Philippines - CloudOffice

The Philippines is one of most dynamic and fastest growing countries in Southeast Asia. It has one of the largest populations in the region, with a rapidly growing and vibrant consumer base, and an abundance of natural resources.

As a founding member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), a member of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and, most recently a signatory to the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Agreement, the Philippines is a key destination for foreign investment.

The Philippines’ government has pursued a policy of economic “opening up” to attract foreign investment: it has increased its investment in infrastructure, construction and agriculture, introduced tax reforms, developed foreign trade and diversified exports.

Many international businesses are exploring opportunities in the Philippines in infrastructure, including Belt & Road projects, tourism, aviation, offshore oil and gas development, sustainable use of minerals, and energy & resources.

Drawing on the firm’s experience in Asia Pacific, including in Singapore, China, and Australia, the King & Wood Mallesons Philippines CloudOffice helps clients with customs and trade compliance, foreign investment, intellectual property protection and dispute resolution across a range of sectors, including energy & resources, infrastructure, manufacturing, and agriculture.

Any legal services undertaken by KWM will be provided by one or more of the separate King & Wood Mallesons member firms as described in the Terms of use & legal notices and only in relation to the laws of jurisdictions in which the relevant member firm is licensed to practise.
