While the Philippines will continue to run a trade deficit, sustained robust growth in services exports will allow the country to generate a current account surplus with this growth providing a spur for the country's freight industry. We forecast the country's current account surplus to rise to 3.8% of GDP in 2015 from an estimated 3.7% in 2014.

Although the Philippines freight industry will face headwinds from continued weakness in the Japanese economy (a key trade partner), we nevertheless expect the country's current account position to remain strong in 2015, on the back of a continued surplus in the services category as well as sustained robust growth in overseas workers' remittances. A strong current account position will therefore help to sustain the ongoing improvement in the Philippines' external accounts, which will greatly reduce systemic risk faced by the country.
