A lot of foreign investors are looking at the positive effects of the increasing number of tourist arrivals, the booming number of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) and the positive effects of OFW dollar remittances in the country.

Based from reports most of the tourist arrived in November and December with 337K and 394K arrivals, respectively. Interesting figures also shows because last January 2012 the Philippines already had 411K foreign tourist arrivals.
