It may seem like fake news, but US news sites have ranked the Philippines as the best country for businessmen to invest in, all based on the World Bank Group report. The said organization bases the potential of a country to be invested in based on its population, Gross Domestic Product and Gross Domestic Product Growth. Other neighboring countries rank close to the Philippines, with Singapore earning the fifth spot, Malaysia the fourth and Indonesia took the second. But clearly the Philippines’ new trade partners have played a big role into this statistic and there is no one other to thank the President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

How did Duterte do it?

Adam Garrie, a political analyst of the United Kingdom, enlightens curious minds by listing a number of reasons how:

1. Duterte made a clean foundation. – Where he cleansed his home town of the filth called corruption and indiscipline.

2. He founded a project called “Build, Build, Build!” – Which in the near future would serve as infrastructure for business men and women across the globe and as a reason for Overseas Filipinos to stay, for it will provide thousands of jobs,
3. He befriended and partnered up with neighboring countries. – This is what a lot of western countries praise him for, Duterte despite appearing temperamental and hot-headed, managed to make peace and create new partnerships of mutual benefit.

4. Tax Reform –Duterte found a way to help the low-wage Filipinos increase the money they bring to their families by lifting the monthly taxes that gets deduced every month.

Duterte is another example of that proves the “Great Man Theory”, where a gifted individual changes the course of history through both cunningness and smarts. And Duterte has proven himself exemplary at both.
