About Philippines

The Philippines, Southeast Asia’s oldest democracy, is a key development, trade and security partner with the United States. Gains from the country’s rapidly growing economy have mostly been confined to the capital region, resulting in inequitable access to opportunities for people to rise out of poverty and better their lives. This disparity marginalizes already vulnerable populations, further jeopardizing the country’s stability.

Our partnership with the Philippine government is critical to sustain recent gains, foster growth that is enjoyed by all Filipinos and secure the country’s standing as a stable ally in a strategically important region.
