The Philippines posted a 6.6% economic growth in 2012 and in 2013, gained investment-grade ratings from two credit rating agencies. Amidst the economic growth, however, many problems remain. Unemployment rate stands at 7.1% and the 27.9% poverty incidence remained practically the same between 2006 and 2012.
