This chapter attempts to examine the factors that have influenced the economic development of the Philippines and the challenges that exist in adopting a pro-competitive reform agenda. Geographical, historical, political and socio-economic issues all require analysis before considering the legal component of a pro-competitive strategy. We attempt to consider each of these considerations before offering our assessment of the future development of competition policy in the Philippines.
