Philippines flooded with Chinese contractors

Philippines flooded with Chinese contractors

The Philippines’ huge infrastructure construction program has attracted so much interest from Chinese contractors, that the government has requested assistance from China to screen companies applying for projects. 

A combination of Philippines President Duterte’s USD180bn ‘Build, Build, Build’ program and the Chinese One Belt, One Road initiative has created one of the largest infrastructure construction booms in Asia. 

The flood of Chinese contractors comes after Duterte shifted allegiance from the US to China last year and signed multi-billion dollar infrastructure funding agreements with the Chinese government.  

China’s Commerce Ministry has pledged to screen Chinese contractors and assign just three candidates for each project and the Philippine government has indicated it will also allow those contractors to bring their own workers to avoid labour shortages and completion delays.
