The Philippines is one of Asia’s fastest-growing countries. Real GDP will increase by 6.5% in 2018 after gains of 6.7% in 2017. The U.S. continues to be the Philippines’ number one supplier of agricultural products and the Philippines is its 11th largest U.S. export market in the world. Consumer-oriented food & beverage products remain the best prospects for future export growth fueled by consumer familiarity with American brands and the steady expansion of the country’s retail, food service and food processing sectors. U.S. exports of consumer ready food products to the Philippines totaled US$964.3 million in 2017, an increase of 2% from 2016. The Philippines is the largest market for U.S. exports of consumer ready products in the region, and ranks 12th overall in the world. The Philippines is an active importer of U.S. processed foods and the 7th largest U.S. market. In 2017 U.S. processed food exports went up 2% totaling just over US$1.1 billion.
