About Philippines

A long-time ally of the United States and the oldest democracy in Southeast Asia, the Philippines is a key partner in promoting sustainable and inclusive development in the Indo-Pacific. While the Philippines has emerged as one of the fastest growing economies in the region, many Filipinos are being left behind. The United States works with the Philippines to counter violent extremism, promote inclusive socioeconomic growth, boost democratic governance and protect human rights.

USAID partners with the Philippines to drive inclusive economic growth and promote peace and stability. USAID builds the country’s self-reliance by strengthening the Philippines’s ability to plan, finance and implement its own development solutions.
