Claro Cordero Jr. • 01/10/2020
In this September 2020 report, we take a look at the latest updates from the office, retail, hospitality and logistics sectors in the Philippines.

  • One notable characteristic of the Philippines' retail segment is the dominance of international brands.

The market fundamentals that drive the retail segment and the deep-rooted Philippine mall culture will continue to attract international brands during the recovery stage.
