Working in Philippines
The Philippines is a nation consisting of an archipelago of 7 107 islands located to the west of the Pacific Ocean about 1 000 km south-east Asia. The City of Manila is the capital of the Philippines exceeding 10 million people, including surrounding towns known as "Metro Manila". The Philippines has two official languages: English and Filipino.

The Philippines is one of the newly industrialized emerging market economies of the world. It is a very dynamic economy, the fastest-growing economy in Southeast Asia. Important sectors of the Philippine economy include agriculture and industry, particularly food processing, textiles and garments, and electronics and automobile parts, that contribute largely to exports. The unemployment rate is 7.9%.

Spain and the USA, both of which have colonised the country, have each been a big influence on Filipino culture which is a unique blend of East and West. Filipinos in general are very hospitable and will give appropriate respect to anyone. It is one of the greatest places to find a job for an expatriate.
