The Philippines after Vietnam , is projected to be the second fastest as it is  supported by robust public and private investment, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) said.
ADB recently released its supplement to its Asian Development Outlook 2018 Update report earlier this month, the ADB maintained its economic growth outlook for the Philippines at 6.4 percent this year and 6.7 percent for 2019.
The Philippine gross domestic product (GDP) remained strong at 6.3 percent in the first three quarters of 2018, though moderating from 6.8 percent last year.
ADB states that investment is the biggest contributor to growth in the Philippines, followed by a strong household consumption.
The ADB also retained its growth forecast for Southeast Asia at 5.1 percent for 2018, assuming robust consumption and infrastructure investment.
“Robust domestic demand continued to drive growth in the sub-region. Infrastructure spending remained strong in Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand but declined in Malaysia,” the report said.
