Nov. 7, 2010 - PRLog -- Upon President Benigno Aquino's election at the end of June 2010, the Philippines has been trumpeting a plethora of infrastructure projects it plans to tout to private investors. The government intends to invite bids for PHP739.8bn (US$16.82bn) in the next two years alone as it continues to move expeditiously to tackle the country's substantial infrastructure deficit. After a spike this year in construction industry value growth, the Philippines will experience slower and steadier growth over the next four years, although with considerable downside risk as the market is fraught with political, regulatory and other business environment risks. After growing strongly in H110, BMI revises up its forecast to a growth rate of 15.02% to PHP466.1bn (US$10.08bn) in 2010.

A number of recent developments corroborate our core view:

* Aquino is seeking policies to make the Philippines a more attractive place for public-private partnerships (PPPs) and investment. The Philippines is looking to offer PHP127bn (US$2.9bn) worth of projects, with at least 10 up for tender starting in September 2010, The government has also taken to the establishment of an infrastructure fund to encourage and facilitate private investment, providing long-term financing for PPPs predominantly in the transport sector.
* The Department of Public Works and Highways has allocated PHP67.01bn (US$1.39bn) of its PHP100.83bn budget for 2011 to paving and rehabilitation of national and secondary roads, as well as the construction of bridges and roads connecting farms and markets. The allocation, made in September 2010, comes amid the new government's ambition to upgrade every national road in the country.
* The potential for growth in the Philippines' wind power sector is vast, with capacity potentially reaching 7,400MW, according to DoE. The Wind Energy Development Association, a Philippine organisation created to facilitate investment into the country's wind power sector, said that up to US$3bn could be invested in the sector to make 1,000MW of wind power available if the correct policies are in place.
* Although this growth potential could attract some investors, BMI believes that investment will be hindered by the structural weaknesses in the country's business environment, which will deter investors.

Although growth will drop off to 6.24% in 2011, edging up to the 7% mark thereafter, BMI expects to see investments in the sector to drive construction industry value growth at an average of 8.7% per year over the eroci next four years. Part of this will be driven by private investment, which the new government is hoping will take a substantial portion, if not all, of infrastructure development funding. BMI expects the sector to grow by 7.34% to PHP712.4bn (US$17.17bn) by 2014, when the industry will represent 6.23% of the country's GDP.
