Philippine & Global Economics Research Report

Our Economic Research Report this Week Features US-China Interdependence.  What are the US and China’s role in each other’s respective economies?  Which country exports more to the other?  Which country has a strategic position against the other?

Philippine March Inflation Rate is likewise discussed.   It is the highest in nearly two years following the rise in fuel and electrical charges.  The depreciating currency likewise contributed to the said inflation as it increases cost of production and other imported basic commodities.

Also included in the Report are China’s Industrial Profits, Japan’s Improving Economy, US Foreign Trade and Labor and Euro-zone Retail Trade.

  • China’s Industrial Profits are the highest in six years.
  • Japan’s Leading Economic Indicators point out an improving economy.
  • The US has a narrower trade deficit in February.
  • The Euro Area retail sales recovered on textiles and clothing.
