The Economy of the Philippines
The Philippines is one of the newly-industrialized countries (NIC); its economy is divided; there are a modern electronics industry and a booming service sector on one hand, poverty and subsistence agriculture on the other.
In addition, there is a development gap between the greater Manila area (National Capital Region/NCR), which in many places reflects the level of development of an emerging country, and the economically backward provinces.
Agriculture still employs about one-third of the labor force, but its share of the national product is only about 10%. Tourism is also an important sector for the country's economy, contributing another 10% to the Philippines' GDP.
