The Philippines is one of the fastest growing economies in Asia and also fast becoming an attractive trade and investment destination for power related projects.
It is estimated that £10.4 billion in fresh investment is needed between 2013 and 2016. This will enable the roll out of critical infrastructure projects and various programs to ensure national energy security.
