Philippines Infrastructure Report
  • BMI View: Growth in the Philippines construction sector surged in Q 4 14, with a massive real expa n sion of 20.5 % year-on-year (y-o-y). R econstruction efforts stemming from the after - effects of Typhoon Yolanda in late 2013 should continue to provide a strong tailwind for construction activity throughout 2015 and we forecast the sector will experience real growth of 9. 4 %.

Key Trends And Developments

  • In December 2014, The Department of Transportation and Communications and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines invited bids from interested parties for six regional airport projects worth PHP116.23bn (USD2.59bn), according to a notice published in three newspapers. The contracts are for the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the airports for 30 years. The six projects are: PHP4.57bn (USD102.1mn) New Bohol (Panglao) Airport; PHP5.81bn (USD129.8mn) Puerto Princesa Airport; PHP14.62bn (USD326.6mn) Laguindingan Airport; PHP20.26bn (USD452.6mn) Bacolod-Silay International Airport; PHP30.40bn (USD679.2mn) Iloilo Airport; and PHP40.57bn (USD906.4mn) Davao International Airport. The projects will be developed under a public-private partnership programme. The invitation to bid for projects to operate six of the Philippines' regional airports under the government's Public-Private Partnership scheme suggests that further momentum is building in the sector, and highlights opportunities presented by growth in the country's tourism industry. We note that risks of project delays still remain.

  • In early February 2015 The Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved a USD75mn loan for the expansion and renovation of Mactan-Cebu International Airport in the Philippines, to improve passenger traffic and support inclusive growth. Funding for the expansion project includes PHP20bn (USD450mn) debt from a consortium of BDO Unibank, Bank of the Philippine Islands, Philippine National Bank,Land Bank of the Philippines, Metrobank and...
