Reimagining VisMin (quick guides)

October 2016

Sustainable, livable and inclusive

An estimated 43.5 million people live in Visayas and Mindanao. This population, together with the government and private sectors, help maintain the regions’ average contribution of 27.3% of Philippine GDP. While the combined GDP of these regions grew by 7.8% from 2013 to 2015, opportunities exist and can be maximized for these regions to reach their investment and development goals.

In line with the government's strategy to rebalance growth and development opportunities across regions, sectors and socioeconomic groups, Building Better VisMin features six investment hotspots in Visayas and Mindanao. The study highlights key initiatives, focus industries and investment opportunities supported by the national and local government units.
